A wave is determined to have a frequency of 12 Hz and a wavelength of 8.5 meters. What is the speed of the wave? Show all of your work, including the formula and correct units.

I am not really sure how to set up the equation for this.
Speed= wavelength x frequency...

So would it just be:
Speed= 12Hz x 8.5m?
But then how do i multiply that when it has Hz and meters?
