Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If I call with \lambda the wavelength of each wave, then we can write: \[\frac{{8\lambda }}{2} = 10\] from which I find \lambda=2.5 meters which is not an option of yours

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes:/ i am not sure...but if i apply that equation, it should be like so? i got 10*2 =20/4=5? would it be 5 m is the solution?:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Did your question change from 8.0 waves to 4.0 waves?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if the answer is 5 meters then 8 waves are long 5*8 = 40 meters, and 40/2 = 20 m/second

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ooh okay! and so whenever we get these kinds of problems, we use that equation? oh yes, i put 8 earlier by accident, but i changed it to 4 :/ did it not go through on your side? :/
