Longitudinal and transverse waves....

Homework Statement


A string is stretched so that its length is increased by 1/n of its original length. The ratio of fundamental frequency of transverse vibration to that of fundamental frequency of longitudinal vibration will be?


Homework Equations


v=(T/(mass per unit length))1/2
v= f*lambda

v= velocity
f=frequency
lambda= wavelength



The Attempt at a Solution


How to deal with these questions? I dont have much of a clue....Please help....
The textbook has not dealt with situations where two waves are occuring simultaneously....
Ususally its either one of them and i know how to deal with them.....using the formula for frequency as mentioned above....
