What is the sum of the polynomials 3a2b + 2a2b2 and -ab2 + a2b2

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

3a2b + 2a2b2 and -ab2 + a2b2

group the like terms

=3a^2b-ab^2+(2a^2b^2+a^2b^2)

=3a^b-ab^2+3a^2b^2

let ab be the common factor, then simplify as below

=ab(3a-b+3ab)

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
