Hi Travina;
3 + 5= 5+3  TRUE, 8=8

2 + (-2)=0  TRUE, adding a negative number is the same as subtracting a positive number.
2-2=0

6 -3+3-6  There is no = sign.  This is not an equation, it is an expression.  We must make it an equation.
6-6=-3+3, 0=0

5 +0=0  FALSE.  This is also 5=0.  Let's make it true.
5(0)=0, 0=0

2+(4+5)=(2 + 4 )+5  TRUE  All these numbers are being added together.  It does not matter where the parentheses are located...
2+(9)=(6)+5
11=11

3 x 5 = 5 x 3  TRUE.  In multiplication, the order of the numbers does not matter.
15=15

10 / 2 =2 /10  FALSE.  Let's make it true...
10/2=10/2

2(5 X 3) = (2 x 5)(3)  TRUE.  In multiplication, the order of the numbers does not matter.
2(15)=(10)(3)
30=30

2(1/2)=0  FALSE.  Let's make it true...
2(1/2)=1

1 X 3 = 3  TRUE.
