Let's go through this and see what you can come up with:

1. What does the cyclohexyl part of the name tell you?
2. What does the 3-methyl part of the name tell you? (Hint: The carbon that is part of the substituent that attaches to the other structure is labelled as carbon #1)
3. What does the cis tell you about how the methyl is arranged in regards to the bromide?
4. Where might the methyl group be located on the cyclohexyl ring?
5. Where might the bromide be located on the cyclohexyl ring?

That might be a vague response, but it is unlikely that anyone is going to draw it out for you.

When you you say sb do you mean someone? I certainly hope NOT.  ???

Otherwise I can explain it with organization.
Part of Compound  |  Explanation

cis  |  This means that the substituent groups are oriented towards the same direction.
3  |  This means attached to a 3rd carbon in a carbon chain.
Methyl  |  Carbon group attached at carbon 3
Cyclo  |  A ring
Hexyl  |  6 carbon ring with carbon group attached
Bromide  |  It is separate form the ring.

I believe there is a carbon group attached to the carbon on one vertex of the ring. This then bonds to the C=C. I may be wrong though...
