their lead mystic. The lost tradition is given by you is equal to we bless you Crime divided by one plus re you prime divided by C square And you prime is equal to zero point seven 50 times the speed of light and the velocity off Miss I relative to the Second Observer, you is equal to zero point mine 50 times the speed of light and the speed of light is 3.0 Motive, Clive, I tend to the power eat meter per second. All right, well, um, let's sold this secret gin for real way is equal to you Prime minus you Divided by Ah, you prime times you divided by C square minus one. Let's plug in the values. So we is equal to you. Prime is, um, 0.750 times the speed of light. Mine issue is 0.950 times the speed of light divided by Ah, you crime. Uh, you Well, you prime is, um, zero point uh zero find 750 c multiply by 0.95 cedo time. See, uh, minus, uh, divided by C Square. Dubai deeply C squared minus one and then for is equal to minus zero point toe 00 times the speed of light divided by minus zero point 28752875 and dividing the two numbers, we get 0.6 96 times the speed of light.
