Help please with quadratics

Can anyone help me solve the following problem tonight if possible. Many thanks in advance!!

I'm not good with quadratics and can't even find the function formula for these.

A quadratic function passes through the points (0, 4) and (6, 0).
Sketch two possible quadratic functions with each of the following properties.
a Two roots and a turning point when x = 4.
b Exactly one root.

a. $\displaystyle y = \frac{1}{3}(x-2)(x-6)$

b. "one root" would have to be a single root of multiplicity two ...

$\displaystyle y = \frac{1}{9}(x-6)^2$
