Well, to say the obvious, you have to combine similar variables before you even start. So you should be asking:

I would simplify first: 2/x = -2x - 4/x^2 + 8. Then multiply through by x^2 to give: 2x = -2x^3 - 4 + 8x^2. Rearrange and divide by 2: x^3 - 4x^2 + x + 2 = 0. You now have a cubic equation to solve. Try using the factor theorem from this point...
