#### Answer

$f(x)$ is an odd function.

#### Work Step by Step

To check if the function is odd, we must check whether it complies to the rule for an odd function $-f(x) = f(-x)$. In order to do this, we'll plug in a random x-value into our function to see whether it works for the rule. Let's use the x-value $1$.
Does $-f(1) = f(-1)$?
Plug in function in place of f.
$-[(1)*|1|] ?=? [(-1)*|-1|]$
$-(1*1) ?=? (-1)*(1)$
$-1 = -1$
Seeing that our function complies with the rule for an odd function, we can conclude that our function $f(x)$ is odd.
