**HELP !: Linear Algebra (I'm stuck)**

Hello my name is Robert and I was referred to this site by a guy from my linear algebra class.

The reason for me written to You is because I'm stuck with a linear algebra problem.

Therefore I hope You Guys can give me a hint.

I have an assignement where I am suppose to build a cubic polynomial of degree 3 using some conditions.

Here are the conditions:

p1(-2) = 2 and p'(-2) = 0 p2(4) = 6 and p2'(4) = 0

p1(0) = p2(0) and p1'(0) = p2'(0)

I know I need to construct the polynomial, but my College Professor that polynomials must be written factorized.

e.g.

p(x) = (s+t) x^3 + (s+t) x^2 + sx +t

I would very much appreciate if any of You Guys could give a hint on how to write a cubic polynomial in the for which my Professor asks.

Thanks :-)
