Smith Charts

TL equations

3. The attempt at a solution

So I am having a hard time understanding how smith charts work. for this problem in part a, I know we have to find the Normalized impedance first which is:

.5 + j0

And then we have to go to our smith chart to find Gamma. I can plot .5 +j0, but then I am not sure what to do from there. I drew a circle from the center to .5 on the smith chart, but I don't know how to find Gamma using the information given. I think I found the magnitude of gamma correctly (.348) but I don't know how to find the angle. How can we use l=0.4lambda to help us here? Using a formula in the book:

theta = (2d/lamda)*360˚ --> gives me theta=288 but I don't think that is right and I am unsure what to do with that value...
