Solve the inital value first order linear differential equation

y'=y+x y(0) = 2

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

y'-y=x

That's as far as I got. I'm not sure how to approach this. I've looked through my notes and book, and I don't have any examples that are similar to this. I looked online and it said something about raising the coefficient of y to e, but I'm not sure what to do after.
