Question 4
Select from the following which is the polynomial function that has the given zeroes.
2,6

f(x) = x^{2} – 4x + 12 


f(x) = x^{2} + 4x + 12 


f(x) = x^{2} 4x – 12 


f(x) = x^{2} + 4x – 12 


f(x) = x^{2} + 4x – 12 
5 points
Question 5
Select from the following which is the polynomial function that has the given zeroes.
0,2,4

f(x) = x^{3} + 6x^{2} + 8x 


f(x) = x^{3} – 6x^{2} + 8x 


f(x) = x^{3} + 6x^{2} + 8x 


f(x) = x^{3} – 6x^{2} – 8x 


f(x) = x^{3} + 6x^{2} – 8x
