See Explanation

Explanation:

1) Let us recall that;

Mass number = number of protons + number of neutrons

Where;

Number of protons = ?

Number of neutrons =20

Mass number =39

Number of protons = mass number – number of neutrons

Mass of protons =39 – 20= 19 protons

2) Atomic number = 13

Number of neutrons =14

Then the mass number =13 +14 =27

The symbol of the element is 27X13

The number of protons= the number of electrons =13

The atomic number is the same as the proton number =13
