Organic chemistry

If anyone could give me a general idea of how to solve these problems, thank you! 1. Write the chemical reaction for the formation of the respective Grignard reagents from the reaction of magnesium with the following organic halides:

(a) iodomethane (b) bromobenzene (c) chlorocyclohexane
