    It's just algebra. Start by multiplying both sides by 2fCR in order to get rid of the fraction. Then isolate Vm by putting all of the terms with Vm on one side, and all of the terms without Vm on the other side. Continue collecting terms and stuff until you're left with something of the form

    Vm = blah.
