Base your answer to the question on the information below.

A glass tube is filled with hydrogen gas at low pressure. An electric current is passed through the gas, causing it to emit light. This light is passed through a prism to separate the light into the bright, colored lines of hydrogen’s visible spectrum. Each colored line corresponds to a particular wavelength of light. One of hydrogen’s spectral lines is red light with a wavelength of 656 nanometers.

Tubes filled with other gases produce different bright-line spectra that are characteristic of each kind of gas. These spectra have been observed and recorded.

A student measured the wavelength of hydrogen’s visible red spectral line to be 647 nanometers. Which is a correct numerical setup for calculating the student’s percent error
