(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

There is a water wave having a speed of .25 meter per second that causes a cork to move up and down 4.0 times in 8 seconds

what is the wavelength of the water wave

2. Relevant equations

v=f times wavelength

T=1/f

x=vt

3. The attempt at a solution

I used the formula wavelength =v/f and I plugged v for 0.25 m/s.

For frequency I plugged 8 seconds but Idk think I did that part right. I'm alittle confused on what 4.0 times in 8 seconds is? Like is it the period?
