Answer

26 neutrons, 28 neutrons, 29 neutrons,

Work Step by Step

To find the number of neutrons we subtract the mass of the isotopes from the atomic number of 24. Isotope 1: mass= 50 mass - atomic number 50 - 24 26 neutrons Isotope 2: mass= 52 mass - atomic number 52 - 24 28 neutrons Isotope 3: mass= 53 mass - atomic number 53 - 24 29 neutrons
