(n + 4)(n+ 22)

Step-by-step explanation:

One way to determine which factored expression is accurate is by asking the question: "Which two numbers multiply to 88, but add to 26?" If you are having difficulty using this method, you can always try the guess-and-check method with a multiple choice question. This way involves multiplying the terms inside one set of parentheses with the terms inside the other set of parentheses.

Step #1: Multiply the first terms

(n + 4)(n + 22) ----> n x n = n²

Step #2: Multiply the inside terms

(n + 4)(n + 22) -----> 4 x n = 4n

Step #3: Multiply the outside terms

(n + 4)(n + 22) -----> n x 22 = 22n

Step #4: Multiply the last terms

(n + 4)(n + 22) -----> 4 x 22 = 88

Step #5: Write the new expanded equation and simplify

(n + 4)(n + 22) -----> n² + 4n + 22n + 88 -----> n² + 26n + 88
