So the question ask to determine or what are the ways in determining how many neutrons and how many protons that is present in an atom of silicon that has a mass number of 28 and an atomic number of 14, base on that, I would say that the atomic number is the number of protons in an atom while the number of neutron is computed by subtracting atomic number and the mass number.
