$160 + 48 \text{ or " 200 + 8 " or } 176 + 32$

$= 208$

#### Explanation:

In 8(26) " "8 xx 26 = ?

Write 26 in way that you will easily know the multiples.

$8 \times \left(20 + 6\right) = 8 \times 20 + 8 \times 6$
= $160 + 48$
=$208$

Or perhaps

$8 \times \left(25 + 1\right) = 8 \times 25 + 8 \times 1$

= $200 + 8 = 208$

Or even

$8 \times \left(22 + 4\right) = 8 \times 22 + 8 \times 4$

= $176 + 32 = 208$
