I thought Lorentz Transformations left Δt(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{2}-Δx^{2}invariant

but, for example a frame moving at .5C for Δt =1 has Δx = .5 so

Δt^{2}-Δx^{2}= .75

If this is transformed by :

to a rest frame

Δt =0.65 has Δx = 0 and Δt^{2}-Δx^{2}≠ 0.75

not sure where I have gone wrong here, any help would be appreciated
