3.Both have the equal number of covalent bonds
4. Both are not the same compound

Dear student,

Please find below the solution to the query posted by you.

Both the compounds are same i.e. ethanoic acid with molecular formula. CH3COOH. The difference is just that the second formula is written in reverse order.
