Double Slit Interference Fringe Offset

APPH12-T5ZC7K

A double slit interference pattern is generated by a device with a spacing of $0.00125\text{ cm}$. It is illuminated by monochromatic light with a wavelength of $500\text{ nm}$ and by a second monochromatic light with a wavelength of $650\text{ nm}$.

What is the angle in degrees between the second order bands of the two colors of light?
