Atoms in form ccp( cubic close parking) and is analogous to fcc( face centred cubic.

The effective number of atoms of in lattice is thus;

Number of tetrahedral voids in which forms (ccp or fcc) is atoms or anions.

The number of tetrahedral voids will thus be

The compound is thus

It's simplified ration

The compound has formula
