(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A transverse wave is represented by the function y = 2.3 sin (1.90 x - 25.0t) meters where y, x and t are in meters, meters and seconds respectively. Determine the wave speed in m/s.

2. Relevant equations

x = A_0 sin (kx - vt)

3. The attempt at a solution

If it's asking for the wave speed, and according to the formula, the wave speed should be 25 m/s and yet the answer is not that. I don't understand what exactly I'm not getting or how I should proceed from here. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
