Halogen compounds usually display two or more M+ ions in their mass spectra depending in part on the number of halogen isotopes. Calculate the m/z values of the M+ ions of a compound of molecular formula C6H9Br2O2. Keep in mind all the possible permutations and combinations.

C6H9Br202                    C=12,H=1,O=2,Br=80

total relative atomic mass is

=(12*6)+(1*9)+(2*9)+(16*2)

=131

we have +9 ions of hydrogen

-4 ions of oxygen

-2 ions of bromine 

carbon does not form ions

The answer was 273 because oxygen has an atomic mass of 16 not 9. But aside from that little mistake the problem was done correctly! Thank you!
