Hint: Energy, wavelength, and frequency can all be used to describe the electromagnetic spectrum. Each approach of thinking about the electromagnetic spectrum is mathematically related to the others. The relationships between energy, wavelength, and frequency can be stated as wavelength equals the speed of light divided by the frequency.

The wavelength and frequency of electromagnetic waves are related by the equation $\lambda \nu = c$ , where $\lambda$ is the wavelength, $\nu$ is the frequency, and $c$ is the speed of light.
$c = \nu \cdot \lambda$
(The speed of light is directly proportional to $\nu$ and $\lambda$ )
$\dfrac{c}{\nu } = \lambda$ (The speed of light is directly proportional to $\nu$ , and $\nu$ is inversely proportional to $\lambda$
$\dfrac{c}{\lambda } = \nu$ (The speed of light is directly proportional to $\lambda$ and $\lambda$ is inversely proportional to $\nu$
