## Chemistry (7th Edition)

(a) Since we are talking about an atom, the number of electrons is equal to the atomic number. Using a periodic table, we can see that the element with $Z = 53$ is the "Iodine" (Which is a halogen (Group 7A or 17)) (b) "A" represents the atomic weight. Using a periodic table, we can see that the element with an average atomic weight of approximately 84 is the $Kr$, which is indeed a noble gas (Group 8A or 18)
