Chapter 14 #117

This problem asks us to find the current, given delta G and the reduction half reaction. In the solutions manual, it says It=nF=delta G/-E. How do we know that current x time is equal to delta G/-E? Are we supposed to find this through units or another way (or would we be given the equation)?

I believe nF = -deltaG/E is derived from the equation deltaG = -nFE. However, I am not sure how we are supposed to know that It = nF. I think we would be given this equation if needed on an exam.
