    the left hand derivative must be equal to right hand derivative at x=1

    for b, the function must be continuous ... so equate left hand limit to right hand limit at x=1

    the right hand derivative is just "a" and left hand derivative can be found using quotient rule

    in right hand side the limit is going to be 1 .then a+b=1 but give me a proof for a=-1/6

    Oh ... this is a bit fishy ... the slope of f(x) will be a at x=1 (left hand slope as well as slope) While on the other side, the right hand slope tends to this value 'a' ... i think limiting the value of the derivative will just do fine. You can find the derivative of arccos... right??

    It seems to be the case of \( \infty - \infty \) so we can apply L"hospital's rule \[ \frac{1}{(-1+x) \sqrt x} = -\frac{1}{(1-x) \sqrt x}\] make them a fraction ... and use L'hospital's rule
