- angle=wavelength/a

So I thought angle=wavelength/width of slit

But when I solve for the width I got the wrong answer of 4567 nm, when the answer is suppose to be 130881 nm. I figured out that I needed to multiply my incorrect answer by 28.7, but where does this constant come from? Its not part of the equation when there's constructive interference.
