Energy and Work (pV diagram problem)

Hi there! So I've never taken physics until now (first year in uni) so I'm struggling to say the least. I'm trying to do this problem of a pV diagram and I'm stuck on b). I've done a) and c). I'm just confused how to find Vc in an isothermal process because if it was adiabatic then I could use the adiabatic law with gamma. See the attached files for the question and my work
