In Exercises 25–32, use a graph of f or some other method to determine what, if any, value to assign to f ( a ) to make f continuous at x = a . [HINT: See Example 2.] f ( x ) = x 2 + 3 x + 2 x + 1 ; a = − 1

To determine

To calculate: The value that is assign to f(a) such that to make the function f(x)=x2+3x+2x+1 continuous at a=1 by using the graph of f(x).

Explanation

Given information:

The provided function is f(x)=x2+3x+2x+1.

Calculation:

Consider the function, f(x)=x2+3x+2x+1

To draw the graph of f(x)=x2+3x+2x+1, first compute the value of f(x) for different values of x.

Compute the value of f(x) at x=2 by substituting x=2 in the equation f(x)=x2+3x+2x+1 as, f(2)=22+3(2)+22+1=4+6+23=4

Compute the value of f(x) at x=3 by substituting x=3 in the equation f(x)=x2+3x+2x+1 as, f(3)=32+3(3)+23+1=9+9+24=5

Compute the value of f(x) at x=2 by substituting x=2 in the equation f(x)=x2+3x+2x+1 as, f(2)=(2)2+3(2)+22+1=46+21=0

Compute the value of f(x) at
