Reflect the graph over the y-axis, translate the graph 3 units to the right and 4 units down, and apply a scale factor of 7.


The vertex of the graph will be #(3,-4)#. The graph will also be facing down. As for the scale factor, for every 1 unit to the left or right of the vertex, 7 "units" will be covered downwards.

graph{y=-7abs(x-3)-4 [-6.955, 13.045, -12.88, -2.88]}
