#### Answer

Over the specified interval, the function has an absolute maximum value at (2, 2) and the minimum value is −2 for -2 $\leq$ x $\lt$ -1 .

#### Work Step by Step

First graph the step function on [-2, 2]. Then from the graph you will see the maximum is at (2,2) and the minimum is at -2 $\leq$ x $\lt$ -1 .
