3-point testcross - (Aug/30/2007 )

hi can someone please tell me where ive gone wrong!!

Use the following three point testcross data to answer the following question:
a b c 300
a b C 90
A B c 90
A b C 10
A b c 110
a B C 110
a B c 10
A B C 280
total 1000

The map distance between A and C is:

----so what i did was this...the parental types are ABC and abc right? so parentals=A/C and a/b
so in the list look for recombinants...which are--a/C, A/c, which all together=90+90+110+110=400 then 400/1000=0.4....soo where have i gone wrong!!
