Two motorcycles are traveling in opposite directions at the same speed, when one of the cyclists blasts her horn, which has a frequency of 544 Hz. The other cyclist hears the frequency as 563 Hz. If the speed of sound in air is 344 m/s, what is the speed of the motorcycles? Ans. 5.88 m/s

If I use f[o] = f

Then I guess I could make v

( f[o] / f

or

( f[o] / f

But how do I solve for v[o]??

Thanks,
