Line Spectra and the Bohr Model of a Hydrogen Atom

A singly ionized helium atom is in the ground state. It absorbs energy and makes a transition to the n = 3 excited state. The ion returns to the ground state by emitting two photons. What are their wavelengths?
(lowest energy photon)
(highest energy photon)
