If you are talking about the method the op was trying to do then you would be correct as has already been said in the post preceding yours.

If you are talking about the method given by nottek then I think you will find it is correct.

Either way, it is not very helpful to the op to simply say it is wrong. I think the fact that they are asking the question tells us that they know that they are not correct and so require some help.
