I'm in organic chemistry and we're working with soaps and detergents. While i was reading i found a little on soap scum.(atleast i'm pretty sure this is what you were asking about)
the 3,2,16, and 2 are subscripts(in the CH3 its one C and three H's, i'm sure you knew that i just wanted to let ya know)
This equation was actually a water-insoluble curd, aka soap scum.
