If f(x) = a-x^2 if x<-1, and x-b if x>-1
How do I figure out the values of a and b ? I know there will be varying answers, but what are the steps to solving this ?
Thanks !

Think of the values of a and b as ordered pairs (0,a) and (0,b). At these points your functions are crossing the y axis, so a and b just move the function up or down the y axis.
