Light of wavelength 411 nm is emitted from a hydrogen discharge. What transition produces this emission?

a. k = 5 to n =1

b. k = 4.5 to n = 2

c. k = 2 to n = 6

d. k = 2 to n = 3

e. k = 6 to n = 2

2. Relevant equations

R = (1/n^2 - 1/k^2)

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not really sure how to solve it. But I'm sure its not a, b, or e. Because n to be bigger then k to make it positive. THat left me with c and d. Someone please hint me how to do this.
