  1. (1/5,-7); x=1/5; translated to the right 1/5 unit and down 7 units.
    It wouldn’t be up 7 units because the 7 is negative so therefore you’re going down

  3. y = |10x-2|-7 = |10(x - 1/5)|-7

    so, the graph has been shifted right 1/5, compressed horizontally by a factor of 1/10, and then shifted down 7.

    Or, since you can also write it as

    y = 10|x - 1/5|-7

    you could say it has been stretched vertically by a factor of 10 and then down.

  4. So what is the axis of symmetry and the vertex?

  5. the axis of symmetry is where
    x - 1/5 = 0 or in other words x = 1/5
    Look, the absolute value sign means it is the same both right and left of here.
    Now find y at x = 1/5 and you have your vertex
