Physics

A transverse wave is formed on a long skipping rope. The equation of the transverse wave is y=5.50 sin(0.031π x+5.52π t) where x and y are in centimeters, t is in seconds, and Π is pi (3.14..). Find the amplitude of the wave? what is the wavelength of the transverse wave? Find the frequency of the wave?calculate the speed of the wave?calculate the transverse displacement when x=3.9cm and t=0.29s?
