If you find the limit of the first function (for < 6) as x approaches 6 from the negative side, that will tell you the value that the second function needs to have to make the function continuous at 6. Does that make sense/help?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

thanks yes it does.

OpenStudy (shadowfiend):

Awesome!
