your is right because the conversion factor that can be used is based on the equality that 1 mol is equals to a certain gram, dimensional analysis will allow you to calculate the mass of the moles.

I am assuming that you are doing university study.
You may want to verify with your supervisor what are the base dimensions for the base physical quantities.
Some professors have their own set of base dimensions which are based on last century resource.
In certain old physics texts, the base dimension in electricity is charge Q but the base unit is from the current which is ampere.
