How do I factor 77x^3=22y^2-33x-88?

Heres what I did:

77x^3=22y^2-33x-88

11(7x^3+2y^2-3x-8)

x(7x^3+2y)(-3x-8)

(7x^2+2y)(-3-8)

(7x^2=2y)(-11)

at this point, im pretty sure ive done something wrong, but i cant figure what! Please help!

Are you sure the problem was copied correctly? Because often during your work, sometimes there are addition symbols while other times there are equal signs. Double check that everything is written down correctly. Also what exactly are you trying to do? As in, what is the context of the problem?

Double check the x exponent. Could it be a 2?
