​​Grammatically, all of them are acceptable spellings, but in these specific cases, one word is more usual. Refer to AskOxford for reference.

Note: When there are two ways of doing something, we make a rule on it one way with the goal of having complete consistency.

​You can not change the world.

Figure: Bad example – two separated words

You cannot change the world.

Figure: Good example - using these terms in one word

We have a program called SSW Code Auditor​ to check for this rule.​​
