For the first one...
so evaluate the above expression at -4 and set equal to
evaluated at -4 and solve for a.
Do same thing for part 2 except use x=5.
Good luck.
Hey everyone! I have these two online problems that I cannot figure out for the life of me. Please help!! I understand continuity but these are terrible.
1.) The function f is given by the formula
when and by the formula
when .
What value must be chosen for a in order to make this function continuous at -4?
2.) For what value of the constant c is the function f continuous on where
Thank you so much guys!
Hello, funnylookinkid!
1) The function is given by: .
What value must be chosen for in order to make this function continuous at -4?
For the first function is: .
So we have: .
To be continuous at , the two branches must be equal.
. .
2) For what value of the constant is the function continuous?
. .
To be continuous at , the two branches must be equal.
