    use algebra to get "t" terms with dt on one side, and "y" terms with dy on other side you might try cross-multiplying here

    thanks, I know that step, right now I am stuck with interval part

    oh ok, you didn't say so i thought i'd start from beginning :) im guessing the sqrt(y+1) part

    if you can't do the 'y' part in your head... use u=y+1 du =dy \[{ \int\limits_{}^{}} \sqrt{u} du =?\]

    sqrt is 1/2 power ... just use power rule

    so I get 1/2(y+1)^-1/2=t^2/2 ?

    \[\int\limits_{ }^{ } x ^{n} = \frac{ 1 }{ n+1 } * x ^{n+1}\]

    i got 2/3(Y+1)^3/2=t^2/2, right?

    yes ... but don't forget constant "+C" on right side
