8 isn't a perfect square, so that can't be factored without using radicals. As for solving it, is that equal to something?
nosnip

that's what I thought but I've got to draw it as a graph

there's y= (x-2)(x+2)(x+2) and y= -x^2 -8

I've only got to sketch it but I need the x intercept I think

  • anonymous
so you need to sketch both of those and find the solution/intersection point?

Yep

ok. for the first one you can use the x-intercepts. The second one, doesn't have x-intercepts. You can draw it using transformations. Reflect the parabola over the x-axis and shift it down 8.|dw:1443290058687:dw|

:) You can solve this algebraically as well \((x-2)(x+2)(x+2)=-x^2-8\) \((x^2-4)(x+2)=-x^2-8\) \(x^3+2x^2-4x-8=-x^2-8\) \(x^3+3x^2-4x=0\)
