(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

[tex]f(x) = x^2 - c^2 \mbox{ if } x < 5[/tex]

[tex]f(x) = cx+11 \mbox{ if } x \geq 5[/tex]

Find the two values of c for which the function would be continuous.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I set these two equations equal to each other, plug in the value 5 since that is the point at which these equations would meet, then solve for c? I'm not sure if I'm missing a step in the algebra or something else, but I seem to be unable to get the correct answer.
