We have compared the data of three clocks A, B and D moving in relative uniform motion with relative speed/velocity between A and B set at 0.6c, relative speed/velocity between A and D set at 0.8c and relative speed between B and D set at (5c/13) = 0.3846c as per the velocity addition formula (0.8-0.6)/(1-0.8*0.6). We have compared the time readings of the clocks when they meet at three events. Event 1 meeting of A and B, Event 2 meeting of A and D, Event 3 meeting of B and D.
