$[-3, -1)$ Refer to the image below for the graph.
Subtract $5$ to each part of the inequality to obtain: $\begin{array}{ccccc} &2-5 &\le &x+5-5 &\lt &4-5 \\&-3 &\le &x &\lt &-1 \end{array}$ Thus, the solution set is $\bf[-3, -1)$. To graph this solution set, plot a solid dot at $-3$ and a hole (hollow dot) at $-1$ then shade the region in between. (refer to the attached image in the answer part above for the graph)
