(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Check if the given initial value is a unique solution.

2. Relevant equations

y'=y^(1/2), y(4)=0

3. The attempt at a solution

I got y(t)=(t/2)^2 and 0 at t=4

So, we have two solutions to i.v.p.; therefore, it's not a unique solution.

Is it correct?
