    Superpostiion of waves

    Suppose listen to two voices as follows (where volumes are in  [0,1] ):

    Voice 1: volume: 1, frequency = 7 Hz


    Voice 2: volume: 0.35, frequency = 3 Hz



    How are the waves combined? Does one interpret it as a 4 Hz wave? Do volumes play an effect?

    Model each voice by an appropriate sine function and then add the functions.
