Bonus 1. In chapter 19, we discussed a variety of condensation reactions (aldol, claisen, etc.).

These reactions are powerful in that they form carbon-carbon bonds fairly easily. The Knoevenagel condensation is a related reaction to those other condensation reactions. The reaction involves the condensation of a β-dicarbonyl compound and an aldehyde. Predict the product of the following series of reactions where the second step is a Knoevenagel condensation (15 points).
