How many moles of electrons are needed to oxidize 115 g Fe to Fe3+?

im so sorry! i did read the guidelines but i guess i skipped over that exact point. thank you.
so i did attempt it a bit on paper but im stuck with the grams part. i know that fe is oxidized to fe3+. i know the charge on an electron is 1.602 x 10^-19 & i have avogadros number but how im supposed to go about solving this has me confused as well as the 115 grams

Charge of an electron doesn't matter. How many electrons required to oxidize one atom of Fe to Fe3+? To oxidize dozen of atoms? How many moles of electrons required to oxidize mole of atoms?

3 electrons needed to oxidize one atom of fe to fe3+ right?

Yes.

It just occurred to me the question is poorly worded - technically to oxidize the atom electrons are not needed but rather they need to be taken from the atom, but the number is OK.
