    In complex compounds coordination number is the number of atoms or polyatomic ions surrounding the central metal. In given statement the coordination number given is 6, means there are 6 ligands surrounding the metal atom, and the ligands given are only NHu2083, so 6 NHu2083 molecules are surrounding the Cobalt atom. Hence,

    [Co (NHu2083)u2086]
    As, NHu2083 is neutral so the charge on sphere will be the charge on Co, as charge given in statement id +3 so,

    [Co (NHu2083)u2086]u00b3u207a

    Name of this complex is as follow,

    Hexaamminecobalt (III) Ion
