Gender & quantity agreements in p.c.

Bonjour! When asked to conjugate « arriver » in the passé composé I wrote « vous êtes arrivé(s) » and was marked incorrect because I included (s). Mais... vous êtes arrivé - you (formal) arrived vs vous êtes arrivés - you (plural) arrived are both correct, non?

I also wrote « je suis arrivé(e) » and was marked incorrectly as well.
