    First, identify the element names using your periodic table.

    "S" means sulfur. "Br" means bromine. The second element drops the ending and adds "-ide".


    sulfur bromide

    Decide if the compound is ionic or covalent.

    Since there are two non-metals, this is a covalent compound. So, will use Greek prefixes for the number of atoms. You can see the list below and find "2" and "6".
