## Main Question or Discussion Point

I had a quick question about Time Dilation and Length Contraction.

Are the two just different ways of measuring/describing the same effect? Or rather they both follow as a consequence from one another?

i.e. I can find how much a length is contracted by finding the dilated time interval and multiplying by velocity.

Or I can how much a time interval is dilated by finding how much the length is contracted and then dividing by the velocity?
