I don't think this is a complete answer.You have left complex numbers unsolved.

Answer should be: 0.411∠-17.13°

Answer should be: 0.411∠-17.13°

Polar or rectangular form for complex values are equally good if the problem doesn't specify that the answer must be given in one or the other.

I think you'll find that your polar value for the load current is not quite right. Should be more like 0.489 ∠-18.5°.

You'll have to show where your numbers are coming from. Show your determinations of Ve and Ze.

I=Ve/(Ze+Rl)

Your polar value for R3 is okay. But the polar value you obtained for R1+R3 is a bit off. I see:

R1 + R3 = 60.208 Ω ∠ -4.764° (your angle is off a bit). As a result I'm seeing a value for Ve of

Ve = 34.241 V ∠ -9.273°

which is just a bit larger than your value.

I'm not sure where your numbers are coming from for Z

Carrying on I find

$$I = \frac{Ve}{Z_E + RL} = \frac{34.241 V~ ∠ -9.273°}{69.967 Ω ~∠ 9.188°} = 0.489 A ~∠ -18.461°$$
