## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

So here i attempt to solve the equation...usually the way i go about this is

you multiply 3 by -1

you get -3

then i ask myself what multiplies to -3 and adds to -8.....after that i am able to solve it...but for some reason i havent been able to come up with a combination of numbers that answer that question and i am stuck...if anyone can tell me what those combination of numbers are...or better yet can solve it for me so i can see how it was done, would be greatly appreciated :)
