1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
I have a twin brother, and we're 30 years old. If i travel for three years at 2.55 X 10^8m/s (0.85c) while my brother is a rest on Earth, how much older than me will my brother be upon my return?


2. Relevant equations

t=To/√1-v^2/c^2

[b]3. Try to work out
To=3
T=?
V= 2.55 X 10^8 m/s
C= (.85c) 2.55 X 10^8 m/s
T= 3/ (all of this under a square root sign -->)1-(2.55 x 10^8)^2/(2.55 x 10^8)^2
t=3/0
*i get stuck here because you cant have a zero in the denominator*
