You're right but you didn't continue because you expect the table to have -1 value but it turns out to be 1..Right?..The two values on the table are infact the products(factorised forms of the equation)..There are not the values of x.

Instead of putting -4 for your cross factorisation, you put 4 and 4x+X does not give you -3x. -4x plus x with give you -3x
