Why use u-substitution on this problem?

I suppose if you HAVE to use u-substitution, you could let instead.

That would give you the following integral:

I edited my original reply to include a method where you could use u-substitution.

One note: When using u-substitution, always look for the derivative of u (the one with the original variable) to cancel out. In this case, you identified the problem with the substitution you originally did - couldn't cancel out the t's. But with the derivative would include a 't' which WOULD cancel out.
