Hi; Could somebody please help me with this question: A 3.0g copper penny has a postive charge of 38uC. What fraction of its electrons has it lost?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The method I tried was: (3g/63.55g) x 6.02E23 x A(what i'm solving for) = 38xE-6. Than I took my answer and divided it by 29. However this will not give me the correct answer, and the correct answer is 1/(3.5E9). Can somebody please help me. Thank you so much.
