 Average/467453: Find a third–degree polynomial function such that f(0) = 18 and whose zeros are –1, 2, and 3. Using complete sentences, explain how you found it. 1 solutions Answer 320763 by robertb(4012)   on 2011-07-05 23:03:27 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!-1 a root means x + 1 is a factor of the polynomial 2 a root means x - 2 is a factor of the polynomial 3 a root means x - 3 is a factor of the polynomial ==> The polynomial is of the form f(x) = a(x+1)(x-2)(x-3), where a is an undetermined coefficient. To find the value of c, use the boundary condition f(0) = 18. ==> f(0) = c(0+1)(0-2)(0-3) = c*1*-2*-3 = 6c = 18 ==> c = 3. Hence the polynomial is f(x) = 3(x+1)(x-2)(x-3). I leave it up to you to multiply out the linear factors.
