Just change the variable x with the value x = 2. So, we get:
f(x) = 2x^3 + mx^2 + nx  3
f(2) = 0 = 2(8) + 4m + 2n  3
0 = 13 + 4m + 2n. ..(1)
g(x) = 3mx^2 + 2nx + 4
g(2) = 0 = 12m + 4n + 4
0 = 6m + 2n + 2. ..(2)
Using elimination and substitution for both equation (1) and (2), you'll get the values of m and n
