1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The graph of f(x)= 3x^4 + 14x^3 + px^2 + qx + 24 has x-intercepts -4 and 2. Determine the function.

3. The attempt at a solution

I could solve it if there were only one unknown but i don't know how to do it if there are two unknowns.

What i did so far is plug -4 for x and 0 for the output, got an expression = 0

did the same thing for 2

since both equal 0, i set them equal to each other, simplified and got: 2p-q=13.3

Don't know what to do next.
