Calculate the velocity of the muons as they leave the accelerator.

From my understanding, I must manipulate the Time Dilation equation in such a way so as to make velocity 'v' the subject of the equation. So far I haven't been able to manipulate and can't think of any other methods I can use to find the muons velocity. (Im assuming its value is close the the speed of light

Please note, Unfortunately I do not have answers, just marking guidelines which don't help me at all. Any help will be appreciated.

 Δt = 1/√(1-v^2/c^2) * Δt_p When v = 0, Δt = Δt_p = 2.2 μs When the muon is moving, Δt = 5.0 μs, v is unknown, Δt_p = 2.2 μs. You should be able to algebraically solve for v and plug in the values.
