\[L_0\] is your proper length, L is the length observed by an observer in relative motion (respect to the object), v is your relative velocity, and finally c is the speed of light

I think the answers 0.6m, what do you think?

\[L_0 = 1m\] \[v = 0.8c\] \[L = 1m \times \sqrt{1-\frac{ (0.8c)^2 }{ c^2 }} = \sqrt{1-\frac{ 0.64c^2 }{ c^2 }}m = 0.6m ~~ \checkmark\]

Yes, it gets cancelled out
