Answer:

#y^2 + 14x +48#

Explanation:

To multiply the binomials #(y+8)(y+6)#
we would incorporate the FOIL

F = Firsts
O = Outers
I = Inners
L = Lasts

Multiplying the Firsts #y*y#
Multiplying the Outers #+6*y# and #+8*y#
Multiplying the Lasts #(+8)*(+6)#

enter image source here

We get
#y^2 + 6y + 8y + 48#

Now add like terms

#y^2 +14x + 48#
