    three cycles, or 20mm pre cycle. Amplitude is 10mm, or 1 cm.

    I am wondering what they mean by three cycles? I agreed with you . However, sometimes common folks think cycle is just one passing, not two, so if that were the case, it would have traveled 1.5 waves, or 60/1.5=40mm back and forth, or 20 mm amplitude.
