Frequency and wavelength of a wave are related by the following relationship:

`lambdanu = c`

i.e., the product of frequency and wavelength is equal to speed of light in vacuum.

Using the given information, we can calculate the wavelength as:

`lambda = c/nu = (3xx10^8)/(29.88) = 1.004 xx 10^7 m`

Hope this helps.
