b.) How many bright fringes can be seen on the screen.

MY ATTEMPT:

i worked out the angular separation between bright fringes to be 0.305 rad (i know this is right because i got the answer to part a right). So then the screen has a total angle of 180 degrees or pi rad. therefore i reasoned that the number of fringes is pi rad/0.305 rad. But since there won't be any bright fringe at 0 rad or pi rad, the final solution must be pi (rad/0.305 rad - 2)

Is this reasoning correct or am I completely off? (Note, the answer is 7 fringes)
