Two Loudspeakers in a open field Pjysics

Imagine you are in an open field where two loudspeakers are set up and connected to the same amplifier so that they emit sound waves in phase at 688 Hz. Take the speed of sound in air to be 344 m/s. If you are 3.00m from speaker A directly to your right and 3.50m from speaker B directly to your left, will the sound that you hear be louder than the sound you would hear if only one speaker were in use? What is the shortest distance d you need to walk forward to be at a point where you cannot hear the speakers? I know the answer to the first part is yes but I'm not sure how to find the answer for the second part. Please help!

  1. Walk forward? THe distances to the two speakers can be found by pyth theorem. Find those distances such that one is greater than the other by 1/2 lambda, and you will find d.
