A particle starting from rest moves with velocity v ms^1 where v=3t(t4) find the range of values of t for which acceleration is positive. 3t4*t is this the start? Then plug in values? Felling very list with what the question is asking.

You're missing the point of the question. You need to find the derivative of the velocity function you are given to obtain the acceleration. Then find for what values of t the derivative is positive. $a(t) = \dfrac{d}{dt} v(t)$ $\text{Find }t \ni a(t)>0$
