Work Step by Step

Removing the grouping symbols and then combining like terms, the given expression, $ (8a^2b^2-ab+b^3)-(-6ab^2-7ab-ab^3+5) ,$ simplifies to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 8a^2b^2-ab+b^3+6ab^2+7ab+ab^3-5 \\\\= 8a^2b^2+6ab^2+ab^3+b^3+(-ab+7ab)-5 \\\\= 8a^2b^2+6ab^2+ab^3+b^3+6ab-5 .\end{array}
