The relation between speed, wavelength and frequency of a wave can be described as;

Speed = Wavelength* Frequency

If the wavelength of wave is constant then, speed of the wave is directly proportional to the frequency of the wave.

Frequency = Speed / wavelength

The frequency of a wave moving with constant speed is inversely proportional to the wavelength of the wave. If the wavelength of a wave increases, the frequency of the wave decreases.
