A-Maths: Forming a Polynomial Equation, Given its Roots


It is simple to follow the steps of solving a cubic equation which includes finding the linear factor by using calculator and the quadratic factor by long division or comparing coefficient.

However, when the question is asked in another manner in which the solutions are given and the polynomial equation is to be formed. Some students might be at a lost of how to start the question.

I share with you on how we approach this style of question below:
