hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
if x= a is a zero, then \((xa)\) is the factor of f(x). similarly, if \(x= \sqrt 6\) is a zero, \((x\sqrt 6)\) would be the factor of f(x) did u get this? now can you tell me other 2 factors of f(x) ?

Can you see what the third one (factor) would be?

It is (x+3) That is the three factors which produce those three given zeroes. Now the problem is asking for the function, all you have to do is to multiply those three factors and voila you will have the cubic function. \[f(x)=(x\sqrt{6})(x+\sqrt{6})(x+3)\]

The first two factors when multiplied be comes the familiar "difference of squares) or \[(x ^{2}6)\]Now multiply that by x+3 and you will have the answer.
