We are given that f'(x) = 8x^3 + 3x^2 + 2. To find f(x) we need to find the integral of f'(x).

Int[f'(x)] = Int [ 8x^3 + 3x^2 + 2]

=> 8x^4 / 4 + 3x^3 / 3 + 2x + C

=> 2x^4 + x^3 + 2x + C

Also, f(0) = -5

2*0^4 + 0^3 + 2*0 + C = -5

=> C = -5

Therefore **f(x) = 2x^4 + x^3 + 2x - 5**

f'(x) = 8x^3 + 3x^2 + 2

We know that f(x) = integral of f'(x).

==> f(x) = intg (8x^3 + 3x^2 + 2) dx

= intg 8x^3 dx + intg 3x^2 dx + intg 2 dx

= 8x^4/4 + 3x^3/3 + 2x + C

==> f(x) = 2x^4 + x^3 + 2x + C

But we are given that f(0) = -5

==> f(0) = 0+ C = -5

==> C = -5

**==> f(x) = 2x^4 + x^3 + 2x -5 **
