–2a² + 4ab – 5a – 2b + b²

Solution:Given data:

–2a(a + b – 5) + 3(–5a + 2b) + b(6a + b – 8)

To solve this expression:Multiply each number or variable into the bracket.

–2a(a + b – 5) + 3(–5a + 2b) + b(6a + b – 8)

= –2a² – 2ab + 10a – 15a + 6b + 6ab + b² – 8b

Arrange like terms together.

= –2a² – 2ab + 6ab + 10a – 15a + 6b – 8b + b²

= –2a² + 4ab – 5a – 2b + b²

Hence the solution is –2a² + 4ab – 5a – 2b + b².
