For each zero c, meaning f(c) = 0, your function f(x) has to have a factor (x - c). Your function needs ___ factors. (You fill in!)

#### Explanation:

Concept: If

We have zeroes:

So we will have factors:

Does this have the right (leading) coefficient?

You'll learn more if you finish this yourself!
