= color(blue)(y^2+ 11y+24

#### Explanation:

$\textcolor{b l u e}{\left(y + 8\right)} \left(y + 3\right)$

Here, we need to multiply each term within the first bracket with each term of the second bracket.

$= \textcolor{b l u e}{\left(y\right)} \cdot \left(y + 3\right) + \textcolor{b l u e}{\left(8\right)} \cdot \left(y + 3\right)$

$= {y}^{2} + 3 y + 8 y + 24$

= color(blue)(y^2+ 11y+24
