4c^{2} - 8c = 0
First, look to see if there is a common factor among both terms on the left hand side of the equation. In this case there is a greatest common factor, that being '4c':
(4c)(c - 2) = 0
By the zero product property, which states that if the product of two factors equals 0 then at least one factor must equal 0, we can set each factor above equal to 0:
4c = 0
c - 2 = 0
Solve for c in both cases:
4c = 0 ==> 4c/4 = 0/4 ==> c = 0
c - 2 = 0 ==> c - 2 + 2 = 0 + 2 ==> c = 2
