Answer:

#y = -1#
#x = 1/54#.

Explanation:

#g(x) = 54x - 1#.
Let #g(x)# be #y#. So,
#y = 54x - 1#.
When we find the #y# intercept, we know that #x# is 0, so,
#y = 54(0) -1#,
#y = -1#.
When we find the #x# intercept, we know that #y# is 0, so,
#0 = 54x -1#. We solve for #x#, so,
#54x = 1#,
#x = 1/54#.
