What color photon would be emitted if it gave off a photon with 3.29E-19 J of energy? please helpppppp?

You need an equation that relates energy to either wavelenght or frequency of the photon. You can use either
E = h f or its equivalent E = h c/lambda
where h is Planck's constant, f is frequency, c is the speed of light and lambda is the wavelength.
So if you use E = hf, solve for f gives:
f = E/h = 3.29 E-19J/6.6 E-27 J s
Determine this frequency and look up the corresponding color.

E = hc/lambda, so
lambda = hc/E
= around 6 x 10^(-7) m = 600 nm,
which is orange light.
