Answer:

You don't have to (you can't), they're given .

Explanation:

The electronegativity of an element is always relative to other elements', and it is not absolutely measurable , but chosen. The most common scale is Pauling's scale , in which EN(F) is chosen to be 4.00 , and all other values are measured relatively. You can look up electronegativities of elements in the most periodic tables.
