    The frequency is how many per second:

    (6 swings) / (30 sec) = (6/30) swing/sec = 0.2 per sec = 0.2 Hz.

    The period is how long each one takes, or seconds per swing.

    It's exactly the flip of frequency.

    So we could just take the frequency, flip it, and find 1 / 0.2,

    but let's do it the long way:

    (30 sec) / (6 swings) = (30/6) sec/swing = 5 seconds.
