Bromine Hopping

Chemistry Level 2

Starting with 3-acetyl-2,4-pentadione, precede through the reactions shown above. BB and DD will both be products that have the standard name: Number\boxed{Number}-bromo-3-ethyl pentane. You must determine which carbon (cc) positions the Bromine will be in products BB and DD. Find the difference of those positions going from product BB to DD.

For example, if the Bromine is on c5c_5 of product BB and c1c_1 of product DD then your answer will be 51=45 - 1 = 4.

Use IUPAC numbering protocol when answering this question.
