I have a few questions that i am not too sure how to figure out...
1- as a racing car zooms by you, its pitch decreases by 20%. If the speed of sound is 345m/s, how fast is the car travelling?

2-a person has a threshold of hearing of 5db. another person has a threshold of hearing of 25db. Which person has better hearing and by how much?

PLEASE HELP! :(
