    The no. of electrons flowing is the charge divided by the charge of a single electron.

    Charge is measured in Coulombs.

    1 Coulomb is the quantity of electrons passing a point flowing at a rate of 1 Ampere in 1 second.

    Each electron has an elementary electric charge of e = 1.602 x 10-19C

    In other words 1 Coulomb = 1 / 1.602 x 10-19 = 6.242 x 1018 electrons.

    You can do the rest.
