    You are told that the actual frequency of a each tuning fork is 1Hz more than it says. What can you say about your estimate of the speed of sound?

    Would the answer be that it increases?

    c = f*lambda

    assuming the wavelength is the same, increasing frequency also increases the speed. So yes, speed of sound would be higher.
