y(x,t)=.0375mcos(.0045 m^-1 (x) + 5.4 s^-1 (t))

How much time does it take for one complete wave pattern to go past a fisherman in a boat at anchor, and what is the horizontal distance does the wave crest travel in that time.

My question is about the second part of the question.

for the first part I got 2Pi/5.4=t

so for the horizontal distance is it just .0045*((2Pi)/5.4)
