Physics Help, Please

Two speakers, A and B, are emitting identical, synchronized (in-phase) sound waves at 240kHz. A person standing a point C hears a relatively loud sound. She then starts walking towards point D, and notices the sound gets quieter, reaching a minimum when she arrives at D. The distance from speaker A to D is 3.10m. The distance from speaker B to D is 2.40m.
a) From the information given above,what is the wavelength of the sound?
b) From the information given above, what is the speed of the sound?
