(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In reference frame S two events occur at the same point; event A occurs 1.90 seconds before

event B. In another frame, S′, event A occurs 2.45 seconds before event B. How far apart

are events A and B in frame S′?

2. Relevant equations

x'=gamma (x-vt)

t' = [t - vx/c^2] gamma

3. The attempt at a solution

I used the aforementioned mentioned Lorentz transformations. I know both T and t'. I'm trying to find x'. So I solved for x in both equations and tried to calculate x' but could not do so. Am I approaching the question correctly?
