To learn how to solve quadratic inequalities (the first step of yours is to multiply out the left-hand side and move the "8" over), try here

The Quadratic Formula is for solving, not factoring, so that wouldn't apply. For factoring, you have to find factors of +28 (so they'll both have the same sign) that add to +12 (so they'll both be positive). What are the possible factor pairs? Do any of these pairs work?
