Physics

Hi, I need help with another question!

A microwave transmitter emits waves towards a metal plate. The waves strike the plate and are reflected back along their path.

I really wish I could put the diagram here but I don't think that's possible... The diagram shows 5 nodes (TSRQP), where minima of intensity is observed. These points are 15 mm apart. What is the frequency of the microwave?

--
Answer is 10GHz but I got 6.7GHz :C

What I did:
I assumed that frequency is for the 4th harmonic. So, I did: F=(2*15)/4.5

How do I do this?
