Answer

$40a^{3}b^{5}+22a^{2}b^{3}$

Work Step by Step

Using the Distributive Property, the product of the given expression, $ 2ab^2(20a^2b^3+11ab) ,$ is \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 2ab^2(20a^2b^3)+2ab^2(11ab) \\\\= 40a^{1+2}b^{2+3}+22a^{1+1}b^{2+1} \\\\= 40a^{3}b^{5}+22a^{2}b^{3} .\end{array}
