It depends on what you are trying to make. For example, Ghirardelli recommends subbing 4oz of their semisweet chocolate with 2oz of unsweetened and 2 oz of sugar.
Also, here is a link to the discussion here on Food52 https://food52.com/hotline/1356-i-have-a-lot-of-unsweetened-baking-chocolate-what-s-the-correct-ratio-of-sugar-to-add-if-i-want-to-u

They're not the same and I would not recommend it. I generally think unsweetened chocolate should be reserved for instances where it is called for.
