y = f(x) max point is (-4,-6)
Find Minimum of y = |f(x)|:

Would that just be (4,6)

And find the minimum of y = 1/f(x)

would that be (-1/4,-1/6)?

Partly right.

Do you think the x-coordinate is going to change for the new max/min?

okay not for the modulus one that wouldn't make sense ... so is the answer for the first one (-4, 6)

but for the second yeah i think the x co ordinate would change since f(x)^-1 is the same as f(x) reflected in the line y = x

Yep

Careful. You're not dealing with the "inverse function". It's simply 1 over the function.

E.g. if f(x) = x^2 then 1/f(x) is 1/x^2 = x^-2.
