2-99.

What are the $x$- and $y$-intercepts of the graph of $x+3=3^{3(y+1)}$?

Find an $x$-intercept by setting $y$ equal to $0$. Find a $y$-intercept by setting $x$ equal to $0$.

$y$-intercept:
$0 + 3 = 3^{3(3y + 1)}$
$3 = 3^{3y + 3}$

STOP and think! Logarithms could help you solve for $y$. But there is an easier way...
