You want to factor out the equation. Find the common factors of (-32) and see which ones add up to (-4). With this you can find that the ones that fit this solution.

The common factors of 32 is 1, 2, 4, 16, 8, and 32.

Okay, but it is negative so negative factors need to be listed as well.

0 doesn't work, but yes. What numbers add up to -4 with those factors that also multiply to get -32?
