I am watching a video about how to find valance electrons on YouTube and came across the following:
A neutral atom has the same number of electrons as it does protons.
I am confused about the part "as it does" here. Please explain the use of "as it does"

"as it does" = "as it has"

The number of electrons is the same as the number of protons. It's pretty easy to remember, because protons are positive in charge (right?) and electrons are negative in charge. If one is going to have a neutral atom (i.e. a non-ionic atom, one without any positive or negative charge) then the number of positive charges must equal the number of negative charges. Just like subtracting, you must have the same number of electron (negative) charges to "subtract" (so to speak) all the positive proton charges.

Anxious Think d'oh! When an atom is broken into equal equal particles is quite fascinating because as a whole unit as it does benefit mankind!!!Applause Applause Applause Applause
