1) What is the atomic # for selenium?

I am not sure what is meant by n+l

3) write the electron configuration, grouping electrons by their "n" values.

[Ar]3d10 4s2 4p4

Are these correct?

4) What is the number of valence electrons for selenium?
what is the number of core electrons?
I do not understand what core electrons are.
