electric wiring to bathroom exhaust fan

Hello All:

I'm replacing my bath exhaust fan with an exhaust fan + a light. I removed the old fan and carefully set the existing 1 black and 1 white wire plus ground aside.

I'm going to put the fan and light on one switch (existing). The question is this... the new fan/light has a set of black, green and white wires. Then there's a separate blue and white (I suppose for the light).

Am I correct in my thinking that the black, green and blue go to the existing black and of course, the white to the white?

Thanks in advance!

Both whites to the white, the black and blue to the black and the green connects to the bare ground.
