Default HCPCS unit billing-dexamethasone = J8540

Help, please...
---probably a basic question, but need a validation answer. Here's the math assignment Pt. is one YO administered 7 mg of dexamethasone for croup during recent visit. Unit billing is 1 unit = 0.25 mg, so based on this would 28 units be correct for the 7 mg. provided?
