the answer to this question is C19H28O2.
when I apply the rule of 13 I get
C21H12 (taking away a carbon and adding a hydrogen)
C20H24 (same as second step)
C19H20O (taking away carbon and 4 hydrogen and adding an Oxygen)
C18H16O2 (taking away another carbon and 4 hydrogens to add another oxygen)
as stated above, the answer is C19H28O2.
am I applying the rule of 13 incorrectly?
