A meter stick moves past you at great speed. Its motion relative to you is parallel to its long axis. If you measure the length of the moving meter stick to be 1.00 ft (1ft=.3048 m), for example by comparing it to a one-foot ruler that is at rest relative to you, at what speed is the meter stick moving relative to you? The only thing I can figure out is that one foot is the proper length. I'm completely confused about the rest.
