# Need help finding electrons for quantum numbers. watch

1. 1. n=2 ms=-1/2

Is the answer 4? I have a total of 8 but I think I divide by -1/2 to get the answer.

2. n=5 l=3

Do I divide the 50 electrons by 3? Or is there another step

3. n=4 l=3 ml=-3

How will I solve this? Do I divide by 32 what are the steps?

4. n=4 l=1 ml=1 I am sure this is the same as 3 but with different steps?
