**Reiny**, Wednesday, September 11, 2013 at 7:44amthere must be double root at x = -1

so it must be

y = a(x-2)(x-5)(x+1)^2

also we know (0,-5) lies on it, so

-5 = (-2)(-5)(1)

-5 = 10a

a = -1/2

with your information there is a unique polynomial of

y = (-1/2)(x-2)(x-5)(x+1)^2

expand if need be.
