# if the function f(x)=k+x,for x<1, =4x+3,for x≥1 id continuous at x=1 then k= - Mathematics and Statistics

if the function

f(x)=k+x, for x<1

=4x+3, for x>=1

id continuous at x=1 then k=

(a) 7

(b) 8

(c) 6

(d) -6

#### Solution

(c)

f(1)=4(1)+3=7

lim_(x->1^-)f(x)=lim_(h->0)h(1-h)=lim_(h->0)k+1-h=k+1

For the function to be continuous at x 1,

f(1)=lim_(x->1^-)f(x)

7 = k + 1

k = 6
