You want the representation of #H_3C-C-=C-CH(CH_3)_2#?


Well this is #C_6H_10#. Each hydrogen contributes 1 valence electron, and each carbon atom contributes 4 valence electrons. There are thus 17 bonds (single and multiple) comprising these 34 electrons. You will have to count these up to check on me!

The simplest way to represent these molecules is to draw them with maximum symmetry. I cannot suggest a website.
