Hey, could someone please help me get started on this problem, I'm not sure how to go about it. Thanks heaps.

Where is the function h(x) = |x - 1| + |x + 2| differentiable?

(a) Give a formula for h'(x).

(b) Sketch the graphs of h and h'

I think at x = 1 and x = -2. Do I have to split the function to find h'(x)?

Yes on both counts :)
