Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So Im a little confused about the absolute value sign here. Is the derivative right:

[x-1/|x-1|]e^x + |x-1|e^x

But what do I do when I set this to zero? Do I get two expressions, one for x>1 and one for x<1 ? (thus removing the absolute value signs)
