    The graph of g(x) is the graph of f(x) stretched vertically by a factor of 1/5 and translated down 5 units. The graph of g(x) is the graph of f(x) stretched vertically by a factor of 5 and translated down 5 units. The graph of g(x) is the graph of f(x) stretched vertically by a factor of 1/5 and translated up 5 units. The graph of g(x) is the graph of f(x) stretched vertically by a factor of 5 and translated up 5 units.

    I got that part so it's either 3 or 4 but i couldn't figure out if it was stretched vertically by a factor of 5 or by a factor of 1/5. My guess is that it wold bby 1/5 but im not sure

    What ever the graph is stretched by, the the function values are affected in the exact same way.

    It would be flipped if the negative was in one of f(x) and g(x) and not in the other.
