It looks kind of evil, but it's actually not that difficult. You can split it up into two different integrals.

Now use u-subs, taking the 4x+5 and the 7-8x to be the u's for the two different integrals. I think it yields:

But don't forget, the coefficient for x in the sin function is -8, making du = -8 and thus causing the two minuses (from the original equation and then from the integration) to cancel out, yielding a positive.
