How many excess electrons are there in a typical lightning bolt that has about 16 C of charge? so I used the equation e=1.6(10^-19)(16) and got 2.56×10^(-18) but my answer choices are: 1 x 1020 1 x 1019 10 1 x 1016 what did I do wrong?

    \[Use,\ Q=n\times e\\ where, Q= total\ charge,\ n= no. of electrons\ , e= charge\ on\ 1\ eletcron\\ you\ wanna\ find, n\\so, n=\frac{ Q }{ e } \\n= \frac{ 16 }{ 1.6\times 10^{-19}} \\1\times \ 10^{20}. Ans\] (excess electrons)
