# Math Help - Finding x and y intercepts

1. ## 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
$y=3^{0+2}-1=8$

3. ## How would I find the asymptotes

I don't know how I would find the asymptotes.
