Easy Question- cant seem to get it

1. Homework Statement
What is the magnetic field amplitude of an electromagnetic wave whose electric field amplitude is 100V/m?



2. Homework Equations
Eo=Bo*c


3. The Attempt at a Solution

100/(3*10^8) = .0000003

Mastering physics says this is wrong though ^^
