# Determine the Value of the Constant 'K' So that Function F(X) (Kx)/|X| If X < 0 and 3 If X >= 0 is Continuous at X = 0 - Mathematics

Sum

Determine the value of the constant 'k' so that function f(x) {((kx)/|x|, ","if  x < 0),(3"," , if x >= 0):} is continuous at x = 0

#### Solution

Given , f(x) = {((kx)/|x|, ","if  x < 0),(3"," , if x >= 0):}

Since the function is continuous at x = 0 , therefore ,

lim_(x → 0^-)f(x) = lim_(x → 0^+)f(x) = f(0)

⇒ lim_(x → 0) (-kx)/x = lim_(x → 0)3 = 3

⇒ -k = 3

⇒ k = -3
