Problem: Synthesis question. Show how the starting material can be converted to the product. Show all the reagents you need and indicate the stereochemistry when appropriate. You do not need to show arrow pushing like in a mechanism question, only the reactions. If a racemic mixture is formed draw both enantiomers and write “racemic” next to the two structures. All carbon atoms in the product should come from the starting material. Use as many molecules of the starting material as you might need to get to the product.
