    For part (a) you can use v = f x ƛ
    For part (b) you use your answer from part (a) using the same equation. Remember, in a fundamental wave the length is half of the wavelength

    So for the second part use speed from a and half of the wavelength?

    Yeah so you know that the speed of the wave must be the same, the fundamental harmonic is when in this case the 0.87m is the wavelength/2 value. From there you can calculate the frequency of the fundamental.
