Saw this today and realized I didn't know how to solve it: A polynomial with nonnegative integer coefficients has P(0) = 3, P(1) = 8, P(2) = 39, and P(3) = 144. Find P(-2)

hm...does it tell you what type of polynomial it is?

*meaning what the greatest power is.

nope, that was all that the problem had. I deduced it must be degree 4 or less, given p(1) = 8 and p(2) = 39 and all the coefficients have to be positive.
