\dpi{150} \lambda=\frac{c}{\left(\frac{1}{n_{1}^{2}}-\frac{1}{n_{2}^{2}}\right)}
for Lyman series
\\ \lambda_{1}=\frac{c}{\frac{1}{1^{2}}-\frac{1}{\infty^{2}}}=c(n=\infty$ to $n=1)$ \\ \\ $\lambda_{2}=\frac{c}{\frac{1}{1^{2}}-\frac{1}{2^{2}}}=\frac{4 c}{3}(n=2$ to $n=1)$\\ \\ $\Delta \lambda=\lambda_{2}-\lambda_{1}=\frac{\mathrm{c}}{3}=304 \ A^0 \\ \Rightarrow \mathrm{c}=912 \ A^0

for Paschen series
\begin{array}{l} \lambda_{1}=\frac{c}{\frac{1}{3^{2}}-\frac{1}{\infty^{2}}}=9 c \ \ (n=\infty \text { to } n=3) \\ \\ \lambda_{2}=\frac{c}{\frac{1}{3^{2}}-\frac{1}{4^{2}}}=\frac{144 c}{7} \ \ (n=4 \text { to } n=3) \\ \\ \Delta \lambda=\lambda_{2}-\lambda_{1}=\frac{144 c}{7}-9 c=\frac{81 c}{7} \\ \Delta \lambda=\frac{81 \times 912}{7} =10553.14 \ A^0\approx 10553 \ A^0 \end{array}
