My prof said "every function is the sum of an even and an odd function, explain."(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ive spent about 2 hours off and on thinking about this and i havent come up with anything really.

is it because f(g(x)) is an even function if either f(x) or g(x) is even, and you can just split every function into simpler functions , one being even and the other odd? or is that just proving that every function is a product of an even and an odd?
