# Function 3

Function f(x)=a(x-r)(x-s) the graph of the function has x- intercept at (-4, 0) and (2, 0) and passes through the point (-2,-8). Find constant a, r, s.

Correct result:

a =  1
r =  -4
s =  2

#### Solution:

$s=2 \ \\ \ \\ f(x)=(x+4)(x-2)$ We would be pleased if you find an error in the word problem, spelling mistakes, or inaccuracies and send it to us. Thank you! Tips to related online calculators
