find all local maxima and minima (the y-values) and the vales where they occur

g(x) x absolute value 2x+5 absolute value

  • info required -

    "g(x) x absolute value 2x+5 absolute value"
    is not very clear to me.

    Is it
    g1(x)= |x|*|2x+5|, or is it
    g2(x)= x*|2x+5|, or is it something else?

    Usually the absolute function makes a kink when the expression becomes negative, and hence produces a local maximum or minimum.
