In the first place, we are going to calculate the valency of the chlorine by the use of the net charge of the ClO₄-ion.The ClO₄-ion has a charge of -1, while each oxygen atom gets a charge of -2. Therefore,Cl + 4(-2) = -1Cl = 7Next, the valence of Mn is calculated using the overall load, which is 0Mn + 3(-1) = 0Mn = 3Therefore, the valencies are:Mn = 3 cl = 7TH = -2
