I've been set the following assignment on RC circuits that I thought I understood. Turns out I don't:

I understand what is happening in the circuit and what it is asking me to do but I don't really know how to go about it.
When i transposed the charging formula i got:
t=ln(1Vc/V0)xRC
When i transposed the discharging formula i got:
t=ln(Vc/V0)xRC
Not really sure if these are correct but if they are, how do I go about calculating the theoretical charge and discharge times when I don't know Vc
I might just be being stupid but Maths and Physics were never my strong points so any help would be much appreciated (or if you wanna do the assignment I wouldnt mind ;P)
Thanks for you time and help,
