The problem is:
Rewrite f(x) = abs(x2) + [2 * abs(x+5)]
I don't even know where to start.
PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

I don't really see a benefit in rewriting it, since it compactly says what the function is in one statement, but you could also write it this way:
When x>2, f(x) = x  2 +2x +10 = 3x + 8
When 5<x<2, f(x) = 2x+2x +10 = x + 12
When 5>x, f(x) = 2x 2x 10 = 3x 8
The function is continuous, but its slope is not

would this be a correct proof of the cauchyschwartz inequality: abs=absolute value abs(u*v) is less than or equal to abs(u)*abs(v). Then you divide both sides by abs(u)*abs(v) so that you get cos(theta) is less than or equal to 1.
