Given function is
f (x) = \left\{\begin{matrix} \frac{k \cos x }{\pi - 2x } & if x \neq \pi/2 \\ 3 & if x = \pi/2 \end{matrix}\right.
When x = \frac{\pi}{2}
f(\frac{\pi}{2}) = 3\\let\ x=\pi +h\\ \lim_{x\rightarrow \frac{\pi}{2}}f(x)= \lim_{h\rightarrow 0}\frac{k\cos\left ( \frac{\pi}{2}+h \right )}{\pi-2\left ( \frac{\pi}{2}+h \right )} = k. \lim_{h\rightarrow 0}\frac{-\sin h}{-2h} = \frac{k}{2}\\
For the function to be continuous
\lim_{x\rightarrow \frac{\pi}{2}}f(x)= f(\frac{\pi}{2})\\ \frac{k}{2} = 3\\ k = 6
Therefore, the values of k so that the function f is continuous is 6
