Exact radii/ionization energies

In the solutions manual, for questions that require us to arrange atoms in order of increasing/decreasing radii or ionization energy, it gives us the actual radii/ionization energy in parenthesis. Are we required to actually know any of these? Or just have a general idea of the size of atoms/ionization energies.

I believe we just have to recognize trends, as opposed to memorizing actual numbers.
