Answer:

Magnesium hydroxide

Explanation:

If you look on the periodic table, you can see that the symbol #Mg# stands for Magnesium, #O# stands for Oxygen, and #H# stands for Hydrogen.

The magnesium metal forms the first part of the name, and an oxygen and a hydrogen together form a hydroxide, so the name of the compound is magnesium hydroxide.
