Hello, the question here says:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Show that any given function can be decomposed into the sum of manifestly odd and even subfunctions.

What i have done is just assumed a continuous, differentiable function, with a number a in the domain of the function, then shown that a taylor series for a function alternates between even and odd functions as the powers of x change from even to odd numbers. Is this enough for this question or is there something i haven't seen?

thanks
