## The Attempt at a Solution

I know how to relate the wave speed to the tension in the string.

[tex]v = \sqrt{\frac{\tau}{\mu}}[/tex]

So as tension increases, so does the wave speed.

But how are the tensions in these two scenarios identical?

I think I can reason it out with words but I'd like to have the math to back it up.

Can someone clarify?
