Find the lowest degree polynomial that satisfies the following constraints:

i) F(0)=0

ii)F(1)=0 $F(0)=0$

ii) $F(1)=0$

iii)The maximum of F $F$ on the interval (0,1) $(0,1)$ occurs at point c $c$

iv) F(x) $F(x)$ is positive on the interval (0,1) $(0,1)$

The answer seems to depend pretty strongly on c. $c$. It's not difficult to find solutions for all c, $c$, but the solutions are not minimal. It seems like the solution involves Chebyshev polynomials, but I'm not familiar with them. Can anyone recommended a link?
