Let \(e(x)\) be an even function, and let \(o(x)\) be an odd function, such that \(e(x) + o(x) = \frac{6}{x + 2} + x^2 + 2^x\) for all real numbers \(x.\) Find \(o(1).\)

\(\text{If you have a function }g(x) \text{ which is neither even nor odd (such as }2^x)\\ g_e(x)= \dfrac{g(x)+g(-x)}{2} \text{ is even and }\\ g_o(x) = \dfrac{g(x)-g(-x)}{2} \text{ is odd and }\\ g_e(x) + g_o(x) = g(x) \)

 

\(\text{Apply this to the two terms of the expression that are neither even nor odd}\)
