# Question #49aae

$A g C l$ is a binary ionic compound. To name a binary ionic compound, the cation goes first, followed by the anion. The suffix "-ide" is then added to the anion.
For $A g C l$, the cation is $A {g}^{+}$ (silver) and the anion is $C {l}^{-}$(chlorine). We just change the suffix of chlorine to "-ide", then we have silver chloride.
