What mass of iron(3) chloride should be added to 450 ml of 0.132 M CaCl2 to give a solution with final chloride concentration of 0.555M

There are a lot of numbers, and I get confused on how to convert it to get mass of iron(3) chloride!!

2. Relevant equations

M = n/L

3. The attempt at a solution

? g iron(3) chloride (162.2 g/mol)

.450 L of 0.132 M CaCl2 gives 0.0594 mols

0.555 M Cl- = 0.555 mols/L

I know the mole to mole ratio we would use is 2:3 but like, i get stuck at trying to start with the right numbers in my dimensional analyst...

my attempt:

0.555 mols/ L Cl- * (0.45 L CaCl2) * (3 mols Cl/2molsCl) *(1mol FeCl3/3molsCl ) = 0.12 (which is wrong).
