pH less than 0?

On homework problem 6B.9, you are given the concentration of H3O+ as 1.5M. The pH of this would be negative, making the pOH greater than 14. The textbook solution manual shows that the pH is positive. How is this true?

The solutions manual has a mistake; you are correct that it would be negative
