Special Relativity: Length contraction in more detail

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3ZqBt8KWVQ&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL

for the derivation of Lorentz contraction equation at 2.48 the guy says, "I won't bore you with the details".

I'd appreciate is someone would please "bore" me with the details, as I'm struggling to do the algebra which he has not shown here in order to go to the next line.

Thank you
