a. by dividing the speed of wavelengthExplanation:The frequency, wavelength and the speed of a wave are related by the following equationwhere v is the velocity of the wave, f is the frequency, and is the wavelength. For the re-organization of the formula and solving for f, we find how to calculate the frequency:
