Do they not give you a proper value, like 5x10

This is a simple case of using the formula ...I'm not sure if the formula's right, it's been a long time since I used it.

The formula is f = v/lambda.

The formula is f = v/lambda.

Sorry

Photons with a frequency of 6.45*10^14 Hz are incident on excited atoms, causing the atoms to emit their excess energy.

The answer i got was 4.65*10^-7 however, the answer should be .465*10^3

Ah, probably is a mistake. Just the decimal places that they seemed to have got wrong.
