I was hoping someone could walk be through how to get specifically the value: $$2.6*10^7$$ cause that's where I'm stuck. Thanks in advance and I hope I put this question in the right place!

Let's also approximate $4\pi^2r1$ as 178×10^12. That means 4$\pi^2r1$/((2/3)×10^7) is about (178/(2/3))×10^5, which is 2.67×10^7. Did you get something wildly different?
