I'm sorry, but this is something specific to your book. If you're not allowed to use standard methods, then you'll need to explain the method you are required to use. Thank you!
Do i add the x^2 and 2x to the other side? If so what would i do with the x^4?
Be careful here with like terms. If you're adding x^2 and x^2, you shouldn't be getting x^4. With that sorted out, you should be able to factor by one of the methods suggested in your book, though I agree with stapel_eliz--other than "GCF" I've never seen that terminology before.
