If a polynomial has a zero at -2 that means one of our solutions is:\[\large\rm x=-2\]Adding 2 to each side gives us,\[\large\rm (x+2)=0\]Our 4th degree polynomial will contain this as one of it's factors. Since this zero has a multiplicity of 2, it will show up twice in our polynomial.\[\large\rm (x+2)(x+2)=0\]Ok we're half way there!

3i is a zero, same idea,\[\large\rm x=3i\]\[\large\rm (x-3i)=0\]So we can add this factor to our polynomial that we're constructing,\[\large\rm (x+2)(x+2)(x-3i)=0\]

Recall that `complex zeros` always come in conjugate pairs. So if 3i is a zero of this polynomial, then -3i is also a zero.\[\large\rm x=-3i\]\[\large\rm (x+3i)=0\]Adding the last factor to our polynomial gives us\[\large\rm (x+2)(x+2)(x-3i)(x+3i)=0\]
