Use this to take a left sided limit. \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}\frac{ \sin x }{ x }=1\] Then take a limit of the right side approaching 0 of \(a+10x\). The limits have to be equal to each other and f(0) for f(x) to be continuous.

@peachpi how is sin x/x = 1? that was what stumped me

(sin x)/x isn't 1. The limit approaching 0 is. \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}\frac{ \sin x }{ x }=1\] and \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}\frac{ 1-\cos x }{ x }=0\] are two limits you need to be able to recognize on sight. I'll see if I can find links to proofs.
