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

    Ok so im solving a SR problem...using conservation of energy and momentum ive got to:

    Gamma a + 2 Gamma b = 5

    And Gamma a * Va = -2 Gamma b * Vb

    where gamma is the usual gamma in SR! a and b are labels for 2 particles..

    Just need a quick way to solve to find either gamma a or b..


    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
