Please help me with this problem if you can:

The function f(x) is defined as f(x)=-2(x+2)(x-1)^2 on the open interval (-3,3).

1. Determine the coordinates of the relative extrema of f(x) in the open interval (-3,3)

2. Let g(x) be defined as g(x)= absolute value of f(x) in the open interval (-3,3). Determine the coordinates of the relative maxima of g(x) in the open interval. Explain your reasoning.

3. For what values of x is g'(x) not defined? Explain your reasoning.

4. Find all values of x for which g(x) is concave down. Explain your reasoning.

Thanks for the help.
