    Hi,
    You know y = f(x)
    You just have to replace x par the values given in the table and calculate f(x) for each value

    f is a function of x. It is the same as y

    f(x)=y=-8x^4+56x^3-136x^2+120x

    Take each value of x from your table and substitute it into the above function and you will find your corresponding y value.
