Suppose you have an question like:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"In the t-x spacetime diagram ofO, draw the basis vectors [tex] \vec{e}_0 [/tex] and [tex] \vec{e}_1 [/tex] Draw the corresponding basis vectors of [tex] \bar{O} [/tex], who moves with speed 0.6 in the positive x direction relative toO. Draw the corresponding basis vectors of [tex]\underline{O} [/tex], who moves with speed 0.6 in the positive x direction relative to [tex] \bar{O} [/tex]."

I know how to solve this just by drawing the [tex] \bar{t} [/tex] axis and then drawing null lines from two points [tex] -a, a [/tex] finding where they intersect and drawing a line from that point through the origin. Anyways, I was just wondering if there was a quicker way to address such problems.
