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
