Suppose event 1 occurs at time . Then event 2 occurs at time

So the two events are and

Now find the t-coords of the events in the moving frame. (You already know how to find the events in the moving frame.)

Yes I used t=1 and t=5 and i got the x component to be the same, but the x component is space isn't it? In order for an event to be simultaneous doesn't the time component need to be the same?

I think that you're swapping the x and t coords somewhere. Put up your working.
