A metal sphere has a charge of +5.0 µC. What is the net charge after 7.0 x 10^13 electrons have been placed on it?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What I tried was to convert the number of electrons to a charge by multiplying it by (1.6 x 10^-19)..and then adding that to the 5..from which I got 16.2..am I takin the right approach?
