```							The distribution of monochloro products is determined by the number of hydrogens of each type: Product 1: The three hydrogens on C-4 are equivalent, so substitution of one gives one of the products. Because there are three of these hydrogens, this product. 1-chloro-3-methylbutane, counts (statistically) as "3" .........CH3 .........| H3C-CH-CH2-CH2Cl ....4..3....2......1 Product 2: The two hydrogens on C-3 are equivalent, so substitution of one gives one of the products. Because there are two of these hydrogens, this product, 2-chloro-3-methylbutane, counts (statistically) as "2" .........CH3 .........| H3C-CH-CHCl-CH3 ....4..3....2.......1 Product 3: The one hydrogen on C-2 gives one substitution product. Because there is one of these hydrogens, this product, 2-chloro-2-methylbutane, counts (statistically) as "1" .........CH3 .........| H3C-CHCl-CH2-CH3 ....1..2.......3......4 Product 4: The three hydrogens on C-1 and the three hydrogens on the 2-methyl group are equivalent ((CH3)2CH- is an isopropyl group), so substitution of one gives one of the products. Because there are six of these hydrogens, this product, 1-chloro-2-methylbutane, counts (statistically) as "6" ...........CH3 ............| ClCH2-CH-CH2-CH3 ....1.....2....3......4 So here is the realtive distributions of products: Product 1.....1-chloro-3-methylbutane....3 Product 2.....2-chloro-3-methylbutane....2 Product 3.....2-chloro-2-methylbutane....1 Product 4.....1-chloro-2-methylbutane....6 These can be expressed as percentages (the sum of all = 12) Product 1.....1-chloro-3-methylbutane....3/12 = 25% Product 2.....2-chloro-3-methylbutane....2/12 = 16.7% Product 3.....2-chloro-2-methylbutane....1/12 = 8.3% Product 4.....1-chloro-2-methylbutane....6/12 = 50%
