ABEGG'S RULE

The tendency of the sum of the maximum positive and maximum negative valence of a special element to equal 8; e.g., C may have a valence of +4 and -4, O of +6 and -2. Sometimes loosely stated as all atoms have the same number of valences, a consequence of the tendency of valence electron shells to be filled to 8.
