So we know that the frequency is simply equal to the reciprocal of the period. And we have the period so we can say the frequency with equaling one over the period of 8.0 times 10 to the negative fifth seconds. And this is equaling 12,000 500 hertz. This would be our final answer. That is the end of the solution. Thank you for
