How do I solve this problem:

A particular wire has a current of 10A.
A) How many electrons pass a fixed point every 5 seconds?
B)If a wire has a radius of 2 x 10^(-3) m and the electron drift speed is 2.63 x 10^(-5) m/s, determine the number density of electrons in the wire.

The teacher posts the answers for us, so the answer for
A) 3.125 x 10^(20) e^(-)
B) 1.89 x 10^(29) e^(-)/ m^3
