Step 1

|2x + 1| = 2x + 1 if 2x + 1 ≥ 0 i.e. x ≥ -1/2

|2x + 1| = -(2x + 1) if 2x + 1 < 0 i.e. x > -1/2

Step 2

Hence, f(x) = 3x + |2x + 1| = 3x + 2x + 1 = 5x + 1 if x ≥ - 1/2 and

f(x) = 3x - (2x + 1) = x - 1 if x < -1/2

Step 3

Critical points are minima, maxima, and points where f'(x)=0.

Since both the branches of f(x) are polynomial function in x, there is no point where f'(x) = 0.

Hence, there is no critical point of f(x). Please enter your answer as DNE.
