Given: $f(x)=3(x-1)(x-4)(x+1)$ Find x-intercepts: $x-1=0 \rightarrow x=1\\x-4=0\rightarrow x=4\\x+1=0\rightarrow x=-1$ Let's find some points: $x=-2 \rightarrow y=-54\\x=0 \rightarrow y=12\\ x=2\rightarrow y=-18\\ x=5 \rightarrow y=72$ $f(x) \rightarrow -\infty$ as $x \rightarrow -\infty$ $f(x) \rightarrow \infty $ as $x \rightarrow \infty$
