Expert Answer

Step 1

Given:

The zeros given of the polynomial are -2,1, and 0.

If a polynomial has a zero at x=c, then x-c is a factor of the polynomial.

Since the zeros of the polynomial are -2,1, and 0 then the factors of the polynomial are (x+2),(x-1) and x.

Step 2

Multiply all the factors to get the required polynomial as shown below
