You have:

y' = dy/dx = 3x^2 + 5

This is a separable equation:

dy = (3x^2 + 5) dx

Integrate both sides:

y(x) = x^3 + 5x + c

where c is the combined constant of integration.

Now use the fact that y(x) passes through (1,8) to determine the value of the constant.

y(1) = 8 = 1 + 5 + c

c = 2

So the particular solution for this case is:

y(x) = x^3 + 5x + 2
