2x^212x+32=x^2 how would I solve this by factoring?

2x^212x+32=x^2
x^2  12x + 32 = 0
(x8)(x4) = 0
x = 8 or x = 4 
2x^2  12x + 32 = x^2
Move x^2 to the left side and change sign then put zero after equal sign..
2x^2  x^2  12x + 32 = 0
x^2  12x + 32 = 0
(x  4)(x  8) = 0
x  4 = 0 x  8 = 0
x  4 + 4 = 0 + 4 x  8 + 8 = 0 + 8
x = 4 x = 8
x = 4,8
