$26.88$

#### Explanation:

$0.56$ can be rewritten as $\frac{56}{100}$ and $48$ as $\frac{48}{1}$.

Therefore,
$\frac{56}{100} \cdot \frac{48}{1} = \frac{2688}{100}$

This fraction can be simplified.
$\frac{2688}{100} = \frac{1344}{50} = \frac{672}{25} = \frac{650}{25} + \frac{22}{25} = 26 + \frac{22}{25} = 26 + \frac{88}{100} = 26.88$
