    Continuous f(x) problem

    f(x) = ( .75x+13, x < -8 )
    ( x^2 + bx + c, -8<x<-3 )
    ( 4x + 9, -3 < x<2 )
    (x^2 + ax+ b, x > 2 )

    Can someone tell me how to go about solving this problem? I am really stuck. All help would be appreciated. You must solve for a,b, c.

    apparently he wants to find b so that the function is continuous
