Can you tell me if I am on the right track on this problem If f and g are continuous functions with f(-3) = 5 and the following limit, find g(-3). My work: I just winged this one since I don't know how to do it Am I even close? lol

My work: I just winged this one since I don't know how to do it Am I even close? lol i assume they are continuous on the real line no, you're not close , since is continuous, (you should know this), thus

Originally Posted by silencecloak Oh ok, that one hit home for me Thanks for makin sure i understood it rather than just checking my answer i'd also put in an extra line to show that . just so your professor knows you know what you're talking about
