I would really appreciate any help. Thanks. First write the integral using a negative index before applying the power rule of integration. Now increase the index of y by 1 and divide by the new index.

Sorry, now I can't understand how to do the integration I don't what equation or formula to use? I've never had the integrate a fractional power before, and can't find how anywhere in my notes. Thanks.

Thanks all, I've been able to work through it now with your help.
