You cannot solve for C with just this information.

Positive integers B and C satisfy B(B-C)=23. What is the value of C? can you solve it now?

No. There are many solutions to the equation $C = \frac{B^2-23}{B}$ The only restriction is that $B^2-23 > 0 \rightarrow B > \sqrt{23}$ Any value for B greater than the square root of 23 will yield a different valid value for C.

$B=23,C=22$
