According to the forum rules (see red link above), you must show your attempt before we can help you.  I would start with the parent chain of carbon atoms.

hey see attachment. start off with 8 carbons because its oct meaning 8. octyne means its an alkyne,

5- octyne means the triple bond is on carbon 5.
3,3 dimethyl means there are 2 methyl on carbon 3
