Initial Value Problem, Plotting numerical solutions of a second order homogeneous differential equation

Given: Initial Value Problem: y''+.15y'-y+y^3=0, y(0)=c, y'(0)=0

Need to plot a numerical solution of this equation from t=0 to t=40 for each of the initial values c=0.5,1,1.5,2,2.5.

Plot all five solutions on one graph.

I'm just getting used to MATLAB; confused on how to solve this problem. Thanks for the help
