If ☉ denotes a mathematical operation, does x☉y=y☉x for all x and y?
(1) For all x and y, x☉y = $$2(x^2 + y^2)$$.
(2) For all y, 0☉y = $$2 y^2$$

st 1) xOy = 2(x^2+y^2)
yOx=2(y^2+x^2)
Yes. Sufficient
st 2) 0Oy = 2 * y^2 -- this expression varies with y
yO0 = 2 * 0 = 0 .. this expression is always 0
but both expression will be 0 if y=0 and different if y!=0
not sufficient
