Thank you very much tiny-tim! I've plotted the position of these atoms in VMD to visualize them in 3d.
Another question for anyone who knows: when they say
what do they mean by . %? Do they simply mean that there's 50% of Ag in the sample? This looks a rather strange way of saying it.

i'm guessing … could "at." be short for "atoms"?

Useful nucleus

at. % denotes percentage based on the number of atoms (also moles). While w% denotes percentage based on the weight.

Thank you infinitely guys. I wouldn't have figured it out on my own.
