I have problems with calculation of the Zeemans effect.

A natrium lamp is being placed in magnetic field with B=0.4T. Calculate the Zeemans effect for the states 3s j=1/2 and 3 p j=1/2

The only problem i get in this calculations is the Landes factor.....can get the right value

i get for the 3s g= 1 (i know i should get 2) and for the 3p i get 1/3 (i should get 2/3) Am I missing something? can someone check it please?

here is the solution
