There are three segments of functions, and two possibly discontinuous points, at x=2 and x=3.
Equate the adjacent segments to find the value of a and b that make the segments have the same values at x=2 and x=3.
Finally, check that the limits approaching from each side (2 and 2+, 3 and 3+) of the combined function are identical. They should be if the function is continuous.

Find all values of a, B so that the function f(x)=1 if x>3, f(x)=ax10 if x<3, and f(x)=B otherwise is continuous everywhere. I think a is continuous everywhere since ax10 is a polynomial, and b is continuous at x=3.
