Simplifying fractions with variables in fractions

Okay so I just started doing reviews algebra and was given this question
simplify [attachment=0:2sbdpkce]Question.jpg[/attachment:2sbdpkce]
I just can't seem to get it right the methods I've used so far are:
multiplying through by c-2 (both numerator and denominator)
multiplying through by 1-(2/(C-2))
