The function f is given by the formula: f(x)= (4x^3 + 24x^2 + 9x + 54)/(x+6) when x < -6 and by the formula: 4x^2 + 1x + A when -6 <= (greater than or equal) x. What value must be chosen for a in order to make this function continuous at -6?
First you need to find limit of `f(x)` when `x->-6.`
Now we divide `4x^3+24x^2+9x+54` by `x-6` so we get
So the limit...
