Answer:

8.7227 MeV

Explanation:

1 proton = 1.00727638 u
1 neutron = 1.00866492 u
For Ti, 22 protons and 26 neutrons exist:

22 p = 22.1601
26 n = 26.2253


Ti nucleus = 48.3854

You are provided relative mass of 48Ti = 47.9359 amu

The mass defect:
48.3854 (minus)
47.9359


0.4495 u

and as 1 amu = 931.46 MeV

Then mass defect = 418.69 MeV

Per nucleon (48) this amounts to 8.7227 MeV
