*Find the intercepts and discuss the end behavior for `f(x)=4x^2(x-2)^3` *

(1) The y-intercept occurs when x=0: So the y-intercept is 0.

(2) The x-intercepts occur when y=0: By the zero product property f(x)=0 when either `4x^2=0` or `(x-2)^3=0` , so the two x-intercepts are 0 and 2.

(3) f(x) is a polynomial of degree 5 with a positive leading coefficient. So `lim_(x->-oo)f(x)=-oo` and `lim_(x->oo)=oo`
