    ok sorry about that, this is my attempt at this problem so far.

    i am not sure if i take the absolute value of both the imaginary and real part of ZL or if i did the calculation for VSWR right, please check my work.

    Would this problem be easier done with a Smith Chart, if so could someone walk me through that method?
