    Finding x and y intercepts

    How would I go about finding the x and y intercepts of this problem:

    g(x)=3^(x+2) -1

    to find intercepts set the opposite variabe equal to zero and solve.

    x-int
    set y=0
    solve for x

    0=3^{x+2}-1 \iff 1=3^{x+2} \iff \ln(1)=(x+2)\ln3 \iff x=-2


    y-int
    set x=0 solve for y
    y=3^{0+2}-1=8
