    Joe goes to the concert hall and hears two pianos played at once. Each piano strikes an identical 250 Hz note.

          Q:  Does Joe hear constructive interference,
              destructive interference, or something 
              in between?
          Q:  If Joe wants to hear a louder sound,
              what should he do?  Be specific.
