I was just wondering what the word is that describes the group of Metals and Non-Metals and Metalloids.

like
Hydrogen, Calcium, Carbon are all Elements

Metals, Metalloids and Non-Metals are all _______

If there happens to be no such word please comment so.
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data



2. Relevant equations



3. The attempt at a solution

Metals, metalloids, non metals come under elements only. They are different TYPES of elements. As to ur three other questions...I would like to know what u r specifically asking.

The Periodic Table is split into three groups: metals, non-metals and metalloids. Those three groups ARE the periodic table. So the only answer to your fill-in-the-blank is "Elements."

But the word "group" in the periodic table is already used (for the vertical columns 1-8).

Perhaps I misunderstand the question:

Is the answer not simply matter ?

Thanks for trying but that's pretty vague, like saying that Toshiba laptops, Mac laptops and Acer laptops are all technology. Perhaps there is no word.
