    a.)
    See attached graph.

    b.)
    Time taken by light pulse to travel from A to M,
    dt1 = Lo/c
    Time taken by light pulse to travel from M to A,
    dt2 = Lo/c
    Hence,
    total time in frame s,
    dt = dt1 + dt2 = 2*Lo/c ...

    Solution Summary

    The solution gives step-by-step working as well as a graph attached for visual aid in understand this question of an alternate derivation of the time dilation equation based on the travel of a light pulse along an axis.
