Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

it is false because atomic number is equal to the number of protons and electons. But neutrons is equal to rounded mass number- atomic number hence not the same as number of protons and electrons unless the mass number is exactly twice the atomic number.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
