The bromines add to opposite faces of the double bond (“anti addition”). Sometimes the solvent is mentioned in this reaction – a common solvent is carbon tetrachloride (CCl4). CCl4 actually has no effect on the reaction, it’s just to distinguish this from the reaction where the solvent is H2O, in which case a bromohydrin is formed
Attack of the alkene on bromine (Step 1, arrows A and B) gives the bromonium ion, which is attacked at the backside by bromide ion to give the trans-dibromo product. Note that the bromines are delivered to opposite sides of the alkene (“anti” addition).
