In the equation C=Wavelength*Frequency, what does "C" equal?

C is the constant for the speed of light, which is 3.00 x10^8.

C is the the speed of light = 3.0 x 10^8 m/s

C is a constant value for the speed of light which is 3.00X10^8 meters/second.

C represents the Speed of Light, which is 2.99*10^8 m/s.

Does it matter if you use 2.99x10^8 or 3.00x10^8? or are they close enough that the difference is indiscernible?

3.00x10^8 should be accurate enough. The constant will most likely be given on a test on the front page equation sheet. But either number works.

C is a constants that represents the speed if light which will be given.

C is a constant. On a test it is given to us.

C is the constant for the speed of light. It is 3.00x10^8m/s. Since it is a constant, it will be given during tests, so there's no pressure to remember this value for tests.
