A cubic function y has real coefficients, and its zeros are 5, -4 and 1. If x=-3, y=64 satisfies its equation, find the equation of the cubic function in standard form.

(x-5)(x+4)(x-1) = 0 subbing in x = -3 yields 32 so there must be a 2 multiplier

2 (x-5)(x+4)(x-1) = multiply all of this out :

2x^3-4x^2-38x+40
