So you want the value of k such that at the value of . This is the equation: . This reduces to . Hence, .
I have no idea where to begin. I'm not used to these kinds of problems.
Could someone solve it/show work. Please and thank you.

I find it hard to argue with the graph. The graphs of the two functions on their respective intervals is clearly continuous with the choice k = -pi^2 / 4. I don't see any way that this solution can be wrong.
Show this graph to whoever gave you the problem and ask them what their solution looks like. If we are wrong I'd like to see just what the answer is.
