Relationship Between Equations

What is the relationship between En= -hR/n2 and Rydberg's equation?

The Rydberg equation finds the change in energy of electrons at a specific energy level. It essentially finds delta E, and the equation utilizes En = -hR/n^2 by finding the change, thus making it deltaE = -hR/n(final)^2) - (-hR/n(initial)^2). Once you simplify the equation, it results to deltaE = hR(-1/n(final)^2 + 1/n(initial)^2)).
