The first step for this problem is to integrate the expression (i.e. find the antiderivative). This will give us the expression for `y`.
So we have `y = x^3− x^2+ K`
This represents a family of curves, and depends on the value of `K` for the y-intercept.
We must now find the value of `K` from the information given in the question.
Since the curve passes through `(2, 5)`, we substitute these values into
`y = x^3− x^2+ K`
`5 = (2)^3 − (2)^2 + K`
`5 = 8 − 4 + K`
So `K = 1`.
So the required curve is `y = x^3− x^2+ 1`
