    If those are the zeros, the factors must be (x+2)(x-2)(x-4)(x-6). Set that equal to 0 and you have the equation.

    Yes. Write y = (x+2)(x-2)(x-4)(x-6) That is the function that has the given zeros. I do not know if your instructor requires you to multiply it out or not.

    probably wants you to multiply, just to be annoying
