3. The attempt at a solution

The online chapter gave me the above equation for the potential due a continuous charge. I converted pico coulomb to coulomb and cm to m. I also did charge times length for lambda. I got .0644 Volts and the site says its wrong. So then I tried charge divided by length for lambda. I got 3.28 Volts and it's also wrong. Any ideas?
