at t = 0, x = x', y = y' z = z' [ as per Galilean ]

or notated* as

x wrt (0,0,0)A = x' wrt(0,0,0)B

y wrt (0,0,0)A = y' wrt(0,0,0)B

z wrt (0,0,0)A = z' wrt(0,0,0)B

Given at t = 0, x wrt (0,0,0)A = 2, x' wrt (0,0,0)B = 2,

after letting vt = 3 [ vt to B, keeping A stationary ]

1) x wrt (0,0,0)A = 2

2) x' wrt (0,0,0)B = 2

3) x wrt (0,0,0)B = -1

4) x' wrt (0,0,0)A = +5

ALL 4 of these equations are mathematically true.

Indeed, I AM using notation that the Galilean does not.

*I challenge - Someone to use some other notation method, I do not care, so long as

that notations shows co-ordinates wrt to which system whenever THEY SAY x' = x-vt.

That is, which x' and which x in their two equations????

x' = x-vt

x = x'+vt

Anyone like to give this a try, please?

ADDED How about this notation?...( after vt ) cutting to the chase

xA = x'B

xB = xA -vt instead of x'B = xA -vt

x'A = x'B +vt instead of xA = x'B +vt
