Look at these examples

In each of the following radioactive decay processes, supply the missing particle
a.  60Co → 60Ni + ___
b.  97Tc + ___ → 97Mo
c.  99Tc → 99Ru + ___
d.  239Pu → 235U + ___

Answers:

a.  b (beta, not a b)
b.  b (beta, not a b)
c.  b (beta, not a b)
d.  a (alpha, not an a)

Hi nevada,

You can find the number of proton by looking for those elements in the periodic table (Ga has 31 protons, and Ge has 32).
This looks like Beta- decay, where one of the neutron is converted to a proton and emits an electron is the process.
7331Ga   ---->   7331Ge + e

Hope this helps,
