Homework Help: chemistry

If my original sample contained 7.1 grams of potassium chlorate. How many moles of oxygen gas would I expect to have evolved? Hint: Convert grams to moles of potassium chlorate, then use the mole ratio in the balanced equation. Balance this equation KClO3 → KCl + O2(g)
I get .0869033048 when i do the calculations, want to make sure I did it right. 2KClO3 → 2KCl + 3O2(g)
7.1 g * (1 mol/122.55 g/mol) = .0579355465 mol * (3/2) = .0869033048
