min/max point

minimum or maximum

f(x)=2x^2+8x-2

a=2

x=(-b)/(2a)=(-8)/(2)(2)=-4

x=-4

y=2(-4)^2+8(-4)-2

2(16)-32-2

32-32-2

y=-2

(-4,-2)

axis of symmetry is x=-4

range[-2,oo]

minimum value -2

I think you messed up when trying to find the axis of symmetry. There's a small calculation error there and it seems to have thrown off all your answers. However, your work overall is correct.

when you used the calculator to find (-8)/(2)(2) you did not consider the order of operations you must multiply 2 by 2 before you divide -8 by the answer, otherwise your method is correct

My range changes to -10 and the axis is x=-2, and min value is -10?

Yes.
