Drawing the Lewis Structure for PF_{6}^{}
Viewing Notes:
 With PF_{6}^{} be sure to add an additional valence electron to your total because of the negative sign.
 There are a total of 48 valence electrons in PF_{6}^{}.
 Phosporous (P) is the least electronegative and goes at the center of the Lewis structure.
 Phosporous (P) is below Period Two on the periodic table and can hold more than 8 valence electrons.
 Be sure to put brackets and a negative sign around the PF_{6}^{} Lewis structure to show that it is an ion.
