We’re being asked to fill the gap in the fourth row of the table which is to determine the number of electrons.


An element can be represented as:


You can determine the identity of the element using its atomic number:

Atomic number (Z): 

represents the identity of the element
reveals the number of protons
in a neutral element:

            # of protons = # of electrons

Mass number (A)

reveals the number of protons and neutrons

            mass number = # of protons + # of neutrons
