    replace \(x\) by \(3\) in the first expression, get \(3^2=9\) then set \(\frac{c}{3}=9\) and solve for \(c\)

    then they will agree when \(x=3\) and so it will be continuous

    Wow. :( Math always seems so much harder than you think.

    yeah, but once you know it it gets much easier think about when you were learning to add fractions (which is harder than this!)
