If you know what \displaystyle \frac{dy}{dx} is then you can figure out what y was by reversing the rules of differentiation. This is called integration. Functions can be integrated by application of a set of rules. Later in advanced mathematics these rules become a major topic of study. You must use the notation accurately.

You can get a better display of the maths by downloading special TeX fonts from jsMath. In the meantime, we will do the best we can with the fonts you have, but it may not be pretty and some equations may not be rendered correctly.
