- Lorentz transformation answers don't make sense

Hey guys. Noob here.

Question;

S frame = x,y,z,t

S' frame = x',y',z',t'

S' is moving with a speed v relative to S and t=t'=0 when origins coincide

v= 0.6c

find the coordinates of x = 4 & t = 0 in S'

When I use lorentz transformation, I get a negative t' and x' = 5. This does'nt make sense to me because t'=t=0 and reasoning tells me that x' should also be equal to 4. Please help. I appreciate any help
