You need to remember that the tangent function is rational, hence you should write the tangent function as `tan(5x+2) = sin(5x+2)/cos(5x+2)` .
You need to find dy, hence you need to differentiate with respect to x using quotient rule such that:
`dy = (sin(5x+2)/cos(5x+2))dx`
`dy = (5cos(5x+2)*cos(5x+2)+ 5 sin(x+2)*sin(x+2))/(cos^2(5x+2))dx`
You need to factor out 5 such that:
`dy = 5(cos^2(5x+2) + sin^2(x+2))/(cos^2(5x+2))dx`
You...
