Group the first two terms and the last two terms.

Factor out the greatest common factor (GCF) from each group.

Factor the polynomial by factoring out the greatest common factor, <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mi>x</mi><mo>+</mo><mn>3</mn></mstyle></math> .

Rewrite <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mn>4</mn></mstyle></math> as <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><msup><mrow><mn>2</mn></mrow><mrow><mn>2</mn></mrow></msup></mstyle></math> .

Since both terms are perfect squares, factor using the difference of squares formula, <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><msup><mrow><mi>a</mi></mrow><mrow><mn>2</mn></mrow></msup><mo>-</mo><msup><mrow><mi>b</mi></mrow><mrow><mn>2</mn></mrow></msup><mo>=</mo><mrow><mo>(</mo><mi>a</mi><mo>+</mo><mi>b</mi><mo>)</mo></mrow><mrow><mo>(</mo><mi>a</mi><mo>-</mo><mi>b</mi><mo>)</mo></mrow></mstyle></math> where <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mi>a</mi><mo>=</mo><mi>x</mi></mstyle></math> and <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mi>b</mi><mo>=</mo><mn>2</mn></mstyle></math> .

Remove unnecessary parentheses.

If any individual factor on the left side of the equation is equal to <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mn>0</mn></mstyle></math> , the entire expression will be equal to <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mn>0</mn></mstyle></math> .

Set the first factor equal to <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mn>0</mn></mstyle></math> .

Subtract <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mn>3</mn></mstyle></math> from both sides of the equation.

Set the next factor equal to <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mn>0</mn></mstyle></math> .

Subtract <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mn>2</mn></mstyle></math> from both sides of the equation.

Set the next factor equal to <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mn>0</mn></mstyle></math> .

Add <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mn>2</mn></mstyle></math> to both sides of the equation.

The final solution is all the values that make <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mrow><mo>(</mo><mi>x</mi><mo>+</mo><mn>3</mn><mo>)</mo></mrow><mrow><mo>(</mo><mi>x</mi><mo>+</mo><mn>2</mn><mo>)</mo></mrow><mrow><mo>(</mo><mi>x</mi><mo>-</mo><mn>2</mn><mo>)</mo></mrow><mo>=</mo><mn>0</mn></mstyle></math> true.
