Find values of a,b,c and d such that g(x) = ax^3+bx^2+cx+d has a local maximum of (2,4) and a local minimum at (0,0).

How do I do this?

Yes, that is the question...and what to do from there to find the original equation?

Set what up? What four equations? The only equations I can see involved are the function, derivative and second derivative. I am attempting to learn this material, it'd be more helpful to see an example to learn from.
