Find a formula for the fourth degree polynomial p(x) whose graph is symmetric about the y-axis (meaning it has no odd powers of x), and which has a y-intercept of 0, and global maxima at (4,512) and (−4,512).

• Calc -

p has maxima at 4,-4 and is 3rd degree, so
p'(x) = ax(x^2-16)
= 4ax^3 - 64ax

p(x) = a x^4 - 32ax^2
= a (x^4 - 32x^2)
p(4) = 512, so a = -2

p(x) = -2x^4 + 64x^2
