Graph the function f(x)= (x-1)^3(x+1)^2(x+3) and show any x and y intercepts

I don't understand how to determine the y values to correctly draw the graph. Help?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

x=1 is a zero 3 times

x=-1 is a zero 2 times

x=-3 is a zero 1 time

I got a y-intercept of (0,2)
