    worth / worthwhile

    (1a) This is worth doing.
    (1b) This is worthwhile doing.
    (1c) This is worthwhile to do.

    (2a) This is worth thinking about.
    (2b) This is worthwhile thinking about.
    (2c) This is worthwhile to think about.

    Which of the above sentences are correct?
    If you think all of them are, do you prefer some to others?

    Thank you.
