Hey calmo11.

Hint: Is something is continuous then it means that all parts of the graph will match up (i.e. there will be no sudden jumps).

As a starting hint this means that cx^2 = 4 when x = 1. - Apr 15th 2013, 05:39 PMzhandeleRe: I need help finding variables to allow continuity.
Since you're asked to make h(x) continuous, and not differentiable, it seems to me all you need is to make the three expressions equal to four at x = 1. That makes c = 4 and m = 5.

The first and third expressions are not defined at x = 1, but they will approach 4 as x "goes to 1".
