Hey there!

Well, this is a transverse wave and they tell you that no energy is lost or anything like that, and also they give you the apparent velocity of the wave. Perhaps using the definition of velocity will give you the phase shift of this graph after .05 seconds?
$$V = \frac {ds}{dt} \Rightarrow Vt = s$$

I got 0.60 as the answer, does this indicate that the graph has shifted 0.60m as a result?? I got 0.60 as the answer, does this indicate that the graph has shifted 0.60m as a result?? Yup! Same graph, shifted .6 meters.
