Explanation:

The IUPAC name for this compound is 2-methylpropylphenylpropanoic acid.

This compound is also known as isobutylphenylpropanoic acid.

This is because it has a methylpropyl group (#"CH"_3"CH"("CH"_3)"CH"_2#) bonded to a phenyl group (here #"C"_6"H"_4#) bonded to a propanoic acid group (#"CH"_3"CH""COOH"#)
