The value at which a minimum or maximum is means the x-coordinate of the point. The value of that maximum or minimum is the y-coordinate of the point. Maximums, remember, are the highest points in an area. Minimums are the lowest.

Local/relative maximum/minimum means the highest/lowest points of each peak or trough. Global/absolute maximum/minimum means the highest or lowest point on the entire graph. This question is asking for local maxima; there are two on this graph.

(2,4), (-3, 3) for the first part?

Those are the locations of the maxima. Remember, the first part is asking you for the value at which it lies. That's the x-coordinate. The second part asks you for its actual value. That's the y-coordinate.

So, the first part is 2, -3 and the second part is 4, 3?
