Question description

An example of this problem is the question "What would be the electron configuration for F+? Use the octet rule to explain why this is not likely a very stable ion." I really don't understand the octet rule...or any chemistry...haha... :) I can get this if I have someone really teach me instead of just reading from a textbook...but I don't have anyone who actually teaches me...
