How many times larger is the spacing between the energy levels with n=3 and n=8 spacing between the energy levels with n=8 and n=9 for hydrogen atom?

2. Relevant equations

E_{n}=R_{h}[1/n_{i2}- 1/n_{f2}]

3. The attempt at a solution

From the above stated equation, i managed to calculate the ratio of their energies, however, I can even calculate λ or frequency v, but what about the ratio of their size?
