Hey guys, this is a little silly question but it bothers me. Im not a math genius (yet i hope) and im still in elementary school so theres alot to learn. But i just read about the lorenz factor in this example he basically used pythagoras of this light clock in a train, so it started of as(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex](ct)^2 = (cx)^2 + (vt)^2[/tex]

and he derived it into:

[tex]t = \frac{x}{\sqrt{1-\frac{v^2}{c^2}}}[/tex]

I would have posted an attemp to solve it but i really just dont know how to crack it and get started

Pleeeaaase help it would be really nice :D
