    \dfrac{1}{2\sqrt{c}}-\dfrac{1}{3}=0

    step 1: add \frac{1}{3} to both sides.

    step 2: multiply both sides by 3

    step 3: multiply both sides by \sqrt{c}

    step 4: square both sides to find c.

    \dfrac{1}{2\sqrt{c}}-\dfrac{1}{3}=0



    Step 1: Multiply both sides by 6 (the LCM of 2 and 3)

    Step 2: Add 2 to both sides

    Step 3: Take the reciprocal (flip the fraction)

    Step 4: Multiply by 3

    Step 5: Square both sides
