5 independent problems in a "self-help arrangement" (which helps you figure out, what the task is, without presenting an example)

not left + up = honest
tear + boy = jail
five + I = kiln
recursion + maize + confident = recursion
uncommon/back + rage/span = anagram

To solve this puzzle, you must:

Find synonyms of the words in each 'word sum', where the letters of those on the left can be combined and anagrammed to make a synonym of the word on the right (or - in one case - the word itself).

Like so...

not left + up = honest

RIGHT + UP --> UPRIGHT

tear + boy = jail

RIP + SON --> PRISON

five + I = kiln

V + ONE --> OVEN (using Roman numerals)

recursion + maize + confident = recursion

I + CORN + SURE --> RECURSION (where 'I' is an example of 'recursion' where one is referencing themselves with a pronoun)

uncommon/back + rage/span = anagram

RARE/REAR + ANGER/RANGE --> REARRANGE
