you asked for it, when two competing waveforms interact and have a similar wavelength and amplitude, they cancel each other out
the quick and dirty explanation:
think of it like this, you are on the ocean, you have two sets of wave coming at you from different directions(i know this is pretty much impossible, but just go with me on this for the sake of understanding how this works), the waves have the same height and the same distance between them, but are coming at you so that the low part of one wave is hitting you while the other is cresting, giving you a net gain of zero
