    Do you have any ideas on this?

    What information do you think that would be useful from the periodic table given that the periodic table provides information like the atomic mass, atomic number and electron configuration.

    If you understand what the numbers on the periodic table stand for it will make this problem easier. Look in you text book it will generally take H2 as an example and explain what each number means
