Expert Answer:

The first question has been answered in your previous query. So, in this query, we are answering your second query. 
 
f(x) = x4+2x3-8x2-18x-9
If its 2 roots are 3 and -3, hence f(x) is divisible by (x-3)(x+3) = x2 -9
 
Using long division to compute the quotient  = x2+2x+1
Hence f(x) = (x2-9)(x2+2x+1)
f(x) = (x-3)(x+3) (x+1)^2
 
Hence, the zeros of f(x) are 3, -3 and -1.
