decrease

#### Explanation:

Well the formula is f= 1 / lambda and lambda stands for wavelength

If the speed of wave propagation remains constant, an increase in the wavelength will result in a decrease in the frequency.

#### Explanation:

To see this relationship more clearly consider the situation where

the frequency (

the wavelength (

If Speed is a constant

then an increase in one of
