Suppose I am in a stationary frame of reference S and there is a lamp post at a distance X from my origin in the positive X direction. Say you move at a velocity V along that axis and the distance of the lamp post in your frame of reference S' is X'. Then by Lorentz transformation equation X' = (X - Vt)/√(1-[V/c]^2) But as per length contraction, you should measure a lesser distance between you and the lamp post than what I measure between you and the lamp post. But the above Lorentz transformation equation says the opposite, that is, the distance in your frame of reference is greater than that in mine? Please point out where I am going wrong.
