2 valence electrons
Depending on how you look at it there could be 2 or one. 5s24d9 is how its written. It depends on how you look at it. If you are working with just shells or orbitals the answer is 1. If you are working with sub orbital the answer is 2. But I'm a little confused on why.
2 valence electron
