GRRR I HATE THIS!!!

Can someone put me onto the right track for this one, dont tell me the answer, just tell me how to solve it please.

Graph- https://imgur.com/a/kKaSq

Question- Round all real zeros in the graph to the nearest integer and find a polynomial function P of lowest degree, with the absolute value of the leading coefficient equal to 1, that has the indicated graph.

K thx

I got it

x = -3 is a zero of multiplicity 2, x = 0 is a zero of multiplicity 1 and x = 2 is a zero of multiplicity 2.

P(x) = -x(x + 3)2(x - 2)2 : polynomial with real zeros hence with lowest degree.

Of course  this will not give the correct max and mins. It just gives the correct basic shape and the correct zeros.
