Least value of p = -4 -> |p| = 4

Greatest value of p = 4 -> |p| = 4

f(-4) = f(4) = 16

So the answer is C.

Why is the greatest value for p 4 and not 5?

Thank you :)

In fact, in the range the least and the greatest values are -5 and 5 for which \(f(p)=p^2\).

4 is wrong. incidentally, the answer is still C but the value considered in the range is wrong.

it is still -5 that into the absolute value becomes +5 and as it turns out: the least value is at the same time the GREATEST value in the range.

Hope this helps.

from the inequality, and the properties of absolute values, we can say that p has two separate/disjoint ranges of values: (-5.3, -1.9) and (1.9, 5.3).

so the lowest and the highest values p can take are -5.3 and 5.3, both of which give the same result when plugged into the function.

so the answer is C.
