The location of metals on the periodic table is right bottom or left bottom?

Report as

In the periodic table, you can see a stair-stepped line starting at Boron (B), atomic number 5, and going all the way down to Polonium (Po), atomic number 84. Except for Germanium (Ge) and Antimony (Sb), all the elements to the left of that line can be classified as metals.

Almost the whole left side to the whole right side. gases and non-metals take up the upper right hand corner of the table and hydrogen takes up one space on the upper left
