If you look online, the Rydberg constant given might actually vary, so the equation itself might be different. My TA said to do Rydberg equations the long way, however, so using the formula En = (-hR)/n^2 for each energy level, and then finding the change in E between the levels. This will give you the energy of the photon emitted/absorbed and from there you can find wavelength or frequency as needed.
