Yes, you're supossed to take the limit. And for f to be continuous on -4, the must be the same (definition of continuity)
Hi Community,
I've done this problem 3 times and am obviously forgetting something. Maybe I'm supposed to take the limit? Anyway here's the problem and my work...
here's my workCode:find M so that f is continuous... piecewise: f(x) = mx - 11 if x< -8 x^2 + 3x - 3 if x >= -8
As always any help is appreciated!Code:f(-8-) = f(-8+) -8x - 11 = 8^2 - (-8(3)) - 3 -8x - 11 = 85 0 = -8x - 96 96 / -8 != 12?
