Atomic mass or mass number is defined as number of protons and neutrons present inside the nucleus.In Case of Ag(Silver) it has 47 protons and 61 neutrons.We don't include in definition of mass number . An atom is electrically neutral it means it has same number of protons and electrons so silver has 47 electrons revolving around nucleus .Hope this helps thanks
