    making it \[a(x+2)(a-2)^2\] and your last job is to find \(a\)

    since you know it goes through \((5,-6.3)\) replace \(x\) by \(5\), set the result equal to \(-6.3\) and solve for \(a\)

    satellite confused me at first when in his 2nd post he typed a instead of x. he made a human error which we all can make sometimes.
