**Analysis of the periodic sound wave produced by a violin's G string includes three frequencies: 392, 588, and 980 Hz. What is the fundamental frequency? [Hint: The wave on the string is the superposition of several different standing wave patterns.]**

The fundamental frequency is the lowest frequency in a harmonic series; in this case it is 392 Hz. I know that for the first harmonic series that the wavelength is equal to 2xLength of the string (according to a site I found on google). Knowing this information I am a little confused as to where I should start to solve this problem. Can anyone offer me some guidance? Thanks
