6th edition 15.17

For part A of question 17 in chapter 15, it is stated that C is independent of the rate.
Because of that, do we ignore [C] when calculating the individual orders and the overall order?

When C is independent of the rate, that means that it has zero order. It's not part of the rate law, but [C] is still considered zero order. So when you do experimental analysis, you do ignore [C] when calculating the orders of [A] and [B].
