Physics; help please :)

Two wires made of the same material of density 7240 kg/m3 and having the radius in the ratio 1:2 but the same length 1.54 connected together and stretched by a force of 540 N. If the speed of a transverse wave through the thinner wire is 3600 m/s, calculate the wave velocity in the thicker wire.

Thank you :)
