Homework Help: Calculus (Continuity)

Posted by Mishaka on Saturday, October 22, 2011 at 8:32pm.

If the following function is continuous, what is the value of a + b?
f(x) = {3x^2 - 2x +1, if x < 0
a cos(x) + b, if 0 </= x </= pi/3
4sin^2(x), if x > pi/3

A. 0
B. 1
C. 2
D. 3
E. 4

I know that since the function is continuous, it should be equal to 1 at 0 and 3 at pi/3 (To follow the other two pieces of the function). From here, I am having a great deal of difficulty figuring out what coordinates would make the function work in this way. Any help is appreciated.
