I am looking at this a bit at a time Alan.

 

$$\\\int{\frac{dy}{tan(y)}}\\\\
=\int{\frac{cos(y)}{sin(y)}}dy\\\\
=ln(sin(y))+k$$

 

Isn't that correct ?

Same thing Melody:

 

 comparison

 

I might have got to the end result quicker if I'd used your formulation though!

Also Melody, it's often advantageous to write the constant of integration as

$$\ln(k).$$

That allows the result to be written as

$$\ln(\sin y) + \ln(k) = \ln(k \sin y)$$

making later simplification easier.
