Zeros & Multiplicities of Polynomial

Given the polynomial f(x)=-.0029(x+12)(x+5)2(x-9)3
find the zeros and their corresponding multiplicities.

I know that in order to find the zeros you must factor and set the equation equal to zero and solve for x but I am unsure what to do for -.0029 and (x+5)2. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
