Write the permutation

P=

12345678

23156847

in cycle notation, and then write it as a product of transpositions

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I got the cycle notation to be (123)(45687), but i am now not sure now to write it as a product of transpositions. My only really thought was just grouping the digits in twos but i don't think that is correct

Thank you
