how do you tell what compatible numbers you would use and theh add example $2.75+$5.35

I never heard of "compatible numbers".
Just add them, keep the decimal point in the same place, and you get $8.10 
the answer is 8.10 you get this because if yo add.05+.05 it would =.10 so you carry the 1 to the tenths place and then add .70+.30 and then add .10 because that is the answer for the hunthenths place and then it would be.10. Then you add 2+5 then add .10 and you wouled get 8.10

Compatible numbers are numbers that are easy to compute mentally
