What is the current in a 46 kilo ohm resistor with 150V across it?

Given : 46 Kilo ohms

150 V

Answers has to be in Amperes

2. Relevant equations

Use Ohm's Law R = (V/I)

3. The attempt at a solution

I converted the kilo ohms back to ohms so 46 * 10 ^ 3 is 46,000 ohms. Divide 150 by 46,000 ohms and I get .003 as the answer. This answer is absurd but I converted the kilo ohms to ohms. I dont see where I went wrong. Seems like an easy question. =/
