    \[E=h\nu={hc}/\lambda\] \[\lambda_{\color{red}{\text{red}}}\approx690[\text{nm}]\]\[\lambda_{\color{blue}{\text{blue}}}\approx460[\text{nm}]\] \[{E_{\color{blue}{\text{blue}}}}=n\times{E_{\color{red}{\text{red}}}}\]

    \[n=\frac{E_{\color{blue}{\text{blue}}}}{E_{\color{red}{\text{red}}}}=\frac{hc/\lambda_{\color{blue}{\text{red}}}}{hc/\lambda_{\color{red}{\text{red}}}}=\frac{1/\lambda_{\color{blue}{\text{blue}}}}{1/\lambda_{\color{red}{\text{red}}}}=\frac{\lambda_{\color{red}{\text{red}}}}{\lambda_{\color{blue}{\text{blue}}}}\]
