i have a question i have no idea how to solve..... Find an expression for a cubic function f if f(3) = 54 and f(-3) = f(0) = f(4) = 0. f(x) =_________________________ Does anyone know how to solve this.

Since you have three roots you can start by using the model where and are the known roots of the cubic. Then substitute f(3) = 54 and solve for .
