Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The small numbers underneath an element is the molar mass. It is the number of grams one mole of that substance contains. But, I have a suspicion you're looking at something else, since you're quoting a(n)...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'll give you an example. If this is correct, we're on the same page. Under carbon, you should see a number that's close to 12.011.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You might mean "atomic number"  it's the number of protons in the nucleus of the element. The atomic number defines what an element is. They're really the only two numbers that appear on a periodic table (molar mass and atomic number).
