Solve the equation for v?

How would I isolate v in this equation?

vt=L*√(1-(v^2/c^2))

Thanks!

    vt=L*√(1-(v^2/c^2))

    square both sides

    v^2t^2 = L^2(1-(v^2/c^2)

    v^2t^2 = L^2 - L^2v^2/c^2

    v^2t^2 + L^2v^2/c^2 = L^2

    v^2(t^2 + L^2/c^2) = L^2

    v^2 = L^2 / [(t^2c^2 +L^2)/c^2]

    v^2 = L^2c^2 / (t^2c^2 + L^2)

    v = √[(L^2c^2 / (t^2c^2 + L^2)]
