56. Why are the values for Atomic Mass in the periodic table not whole numbers when in fact, they
are based on counting wholly the number of protons and neutrons?

simply add the number of protons and neutrons which are whole numbers, therefore the
mass should be a whole number.
c. Because those values in the periodic table are not atomic masses, but mass per moles
and therefore has a different way of computation.

values written in the periodic tables are merely averages, thus, the fractional values.
