Doing my vector mechanics dynamics homework and I cannot believe I am stuck on this part.

trying to factor

t^3 - 6t^2-36t - 40 = 0

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I honestly do not remember where to begin. I remember there is a formula for perfect cubes, but do not remember what is needed for this situation. Any tips is greatly appreciated.
