    you have a definite integral that when solved with give you the difference of two logarithms which when solved using algebra will yield k \[\left[ \ln \left| k + 2 \right| - \ln \left| 2 + 2 \right|\right] = \ln 2\]

    combine the difference into a quotient than you can remove the logs and solve for k
