How would I use separation of variables to solve the initial value problem?

dy/dx = (y +5)(x+2)

I multiply both sides by dx so: dy= (y+5)(x+2)dx

Then I get variables on the same sides:: dy/(y+5)= (x+2)dx

Then I have to take integrals of both sides but this is where I get stuck. Can someone show me the rest? Thanks.
