    There is relationship between the two given by \[v = f \lambda\] if we let v be a constant we will have \[\lambda = \frac{ 1 }{ f }\] notice that it's inversely related. So if you plug random numbers, say a million for frequency what would you get? Also if you put 0.000001 for frequency what would you get? Plugging in a large number for your frequency will give you your result.
