I cross multiply so that it becomes: dz/e^(4z) = 9t dt

From here I need to integrate.

on the left side, I do substitution and this is what I did:

u = e^(4z)

du = 4e^(4z) dz

du/4e^(4z) = dz

From here, my equation looked like:

du/4ue^(4z) = (9t^2)/2 + C

1/4e^(4z) ln|u| = (9t^2)/2 + C

I subbed in back the u in the absolute brackets but I am unsure of what to do next. I need to sub the points in f(0) = 0 but if I do using my equation, I am going to get 0, which I think is incorrect. Any ideas of where I went wrong?
