Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Hoping you can help with this problem!

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

For a flat universe, show that [tex] t_{0}=2/3 (H_{0})^{-1} [/tex] ? Seems like a simple problem I just don't really know where to start.

2. Relevant equations

Hubble's law [tex] v= H_{0}r [/tex]

and then [tex] t= 1/H_{0} [/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I just need guidance where to start. Flat universe means that expansion is constant in any direction right? What do I do?
