Homework Help: Physics

Organ pipes, open at one end, resonate best at their first resonant length. Two pipes have length 23.0 cm and 30.0 cm respectively.

What is the wavelength of the sound emitted by each pipe?
What are the respective frequencies if the speed of sound is 341 m/s?
What is the air temperature in this church?

I'm mot confused by the first question. Does it mean, that the sound will sound best at 1/4 of the pipe's length, or that the pipe has been made so that it's already a quarter of the sound's wavelength?
