1. ## polynomials need ASAP

construct a polynomial with the following properties: Third degree, zeros at 1,2,3, and passes through the point (4,12)

2. ## Re: polynomials need ASAP

A third degree polynomial takes the form: $P(x) = a(x - r_1 )(x - r_2 )(x - r_3 )$ where the r's are the zeros. Can you finish?

3. ## Re: polynomials need ASAP

but what do you do with the point? my teacher only showed us how to do it in the (...)(...) format not with three of them

would this be right? p(x)=2(x-1)(x-2)(x-3)

4. ## Re: polynomials need ASAP

When you plug in 4 for x, do you get 12 for p(x)? If you do, then you got it!
