I know the energies of the energy levels, but wanted to double check on this part

@modphysnoob the book wants in eV. It says use EfEi (finalinitial)
Would I say 0.85(13.6 ev)?

My book gives the energy level values of n=3 as 1.51 ev and n=4 as .085.
To find energy absorbed, it says use Energy final energy initial
