1. you have one complex root, but they always come as conjugate pairs
The other must be 2-2√2i
You also know that one factor is (x+2)

the sum of the complex roots
= 2+2√2i + 2-2√2i = 4
product of the complex roots
= (2+2√2i)(2-2√2i) = 4 + 8 = 12

So the quadratic factor is x^2 - 4x + 12

f(x) = a(x+2)(x^2 - 4x + 12)
we also have a point (-1,-68)

-68 = a(1)(17)
a = -4

f(x) = -4(x+2)(x^2 - 4x + 12)

I will leave it up to you to expand it.
