Find the constants a and b such that the function is continuous on the entire real line:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

f(x) = {e^ax , x < or = to 1 ; 2x+b, x >1

I found the limits as x approaches 1 from the left and the right.

and set the two equations equalling each other

e^a = 2+b

However, I do not know what to do now. I have two unknowns.

If anyone could help me, or point me in the right direction. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
