Resonance in a Standing Wave

This is more a clarification concerning harmonics, I think. :)

The problem is thus: If a hole in a pipe changes the resonant frequency of the pipe by a factor of 2, what is the new frequency.

My confusion: I think this is a simple harmonics question, but I am confused by the term "factor of 2". Does this mean: f2 = 2*f1 indicating it is the Second Harmonic, or does it mean an increase of 2 harmonics, making it f2 = 3*f1? I guess then, my question is: does 1 level of factor = 1 harmonic?

Thanks for the help/opinions!
