- ## \left( \frac {LV} {C^2} \right) ##

When calculating relativity of simultaneity I am confused by one thing. How is the math = to the answer below?

##\left( \frac {LC+LV } {2C} \right) - \left( \frac {LC -LV} {2C} \right) = \left( \frac {LV} {C^2} \right) ##

The part that throwing me off is ## C^2 ## . I assume mathematically since c = 1 I can mathematically add a squared of any number to +1?

I realize this a stupid question but just want to confirm.
