**DrBob222**, Saturday, July 24, 2010 at 12:50pmThe atomic number of an element tells you how many protons there are in the nucleus. The atomic number is the number on the periodic table that increases by 1 from one element to the next. Check it out. The mass number of an element is the number of nucleons for that element. Nucleons is not one of the answers listed in your problem but nucleons is a way of saying "protons + neutrons"' i.e., the total of what is in the nucleus.
