Is the cubic function f(x)=xthe only cubic function that has no local maximum or minimum?

Thank you.

Yes, any cubic of the form f(x) = kx where k is any real number.

Thank you for your response.

f(x)=xand its translations along the x-axis will have no local maximum and minimum. Are there any other cubic functions, excluding vertical and horizontal translations of f(x)=x, that have this property of no local maximum or minimum?

Thank you.

Any translation along the x-axis will look the same.
