    @dajala U are correct except for that u have to add a neutrino to the products side. I'll recall the beeta negative decay again. Beeta negative decay occurs when the element has more no. of neutrons than protons. Hence a neutron will be broken down to one proton , one beeta negative particle and neutrino. So the no. of protons will increase. But the atomic mass won't change cuz even if the no. of neutrons decrease by one the no. of protons will increase by one so the atomic mass remains unchaged. ( atomic mass = no of protons + no. of neutrons)
