Physic please help!

A mixture of red light (vacuum = 661 nm) and green light (vacuum = 551 nm) shines perpendicularly on a soap film (n = 1.35) that has air on either side. What is the minimum nonzero thickness of the film, so that destructive interference causes it to look red in reflected light?
nm
