revel and detected by your playing can be found by deriving the frequency detected by the plan Which is we? Plus VD divided by me times the frequency off the sores That is a call to be we devi air is the half off We did you want to do right by me? This view's us there also don't hear f s we hear So this gives us there three over two times off office. So the frequency detected by playing these a tree or two times office, then using ah, speed frequency and Lambda relation. Then we can write and Lambda Detective is to war three off lenders. This simplifies to two or three off. Linda so Part B is the right answer.
