Find a system K' in which the following events in frame K appear at the same time:

i) x_{1}= a; t_{1}= (2a) / c; y_{1}= 0; z_{1}= 0

ii) x_{2}= 2a; t_{2}= (3a) / (2c); y_{2}= 0; z_{2}= 0

Describe the motion of K'.

2. Relevant equations

Lorentz transformations; time dilation; length contraction..maybe?

3. The attempt at a solution

My scratch-work is too complicated to try and re-post here, but basically I have come to the conclusion I don't really know how to use the equations to describe the motion of K'. I need to describe the motion of K' in the direction along which the motion occurs, which is obviously the x-axis
