Yes, that should work much better.

The last number is for other, meaning anyone who isn't the owner or the group. including an outside user who gained access to your system and you wouldn't want touching anything. Giving Other the ability to execute anything is a security risk that would preferably be avoided. Combined with the ability to read and write.. they could do whatever they want.

(7 is Read, Write and Execute)
