A fisherman notices that his boat is moving up and down periodically, owing to waves on the surface of the water. It takes a time of 2.80 s for the boat to travel from its highest point to its lowest, a total distance of 0.600 m. The fisherman sees that the wave crests are spaced a distance 5.70 m apart.

How fast are the waves traveling?
