If standing waves are set up when two travelling waves moving in opposite directions interact, then how are standing waves set up on a string and why are they set up only at certain frequencies?

Numbers are used to specify a quantity or amount. For example, people give their ages as a number of years: â€˜I am 51 years oldâ€™ or â€˜I am five and a halfâ€™. Votes in elections may be described in thousands. Temperatures are measured in positive and negative degrees Celsius. Numbers smaller than one may be expressed as fractions or decimals.
