We need to rewrite the polynomial equation so that we can properly factor it.

First rewrite

This gives us

We now need to rewrite

This gives us

Now we are ready to factor.

Once the equation is factored we can set each factor equal to 0 to find the solutions, x-intercepts, to the polynomial equation.
