1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

"In the transformer shown in the figure below, the load resistance RL is 44.0 Ω. The turns ratio N1/N2 is 2.10, and the rms source voltage is ΔVS = 77.0 V. If a voltmeter across the load resistance measures an rms voltage of 26.5 V, what is the source resistance Rs?"

2. Relevant equations

See attachment for Equation ofR_{s}

3. The attempt at a solution

I plugged in my values for the formula i got forRbut got it wrong? I got 77.4 Ohms_{s}

Does anybody know what i'm doing wrong? Because i sure don't.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!
