Hint: Here, we are required to find the difference between the first product and the second product. Thus, we will first take out the common factor and then perform the subtraction. Then, we will multiply the end result together, to find the required answer.

In order to find that ‘how much more’ is a number than the other number, it means that we should subtract the second number from the first one to find their difference and hence, find out that the first number is how much more than the second one.
Thus, we have to find:
$\left( {44 \times 2} \right) - \left( {11 \times 4} \right)$……………………………….$\left( 1 \right)$
Now, we know that,
$44 = 11 \times 4$
Hence, substituting this in $\left( 1 \right)$, we get,
$\left( {44 \times 2} \right) - \left( {11 \times 4} \right) = \left( {11 \times 4 \times 2} \right) - \left( {11 \times 4} \right)$
Taking $\left( {11 \times 4} \right)$ common, we get,
$\left( {44 \times 2} \right) - \left( {11 \times 4} \right) = \left( {11 \times 4} \right)\left( {2 - 1} \right) = \left( {11 \times 4} \right) = 44$

Therefore, the first product $44 \times 2$ is 44 more than the second product $11 \times 4$
Therefore, this is the required answer.

Note:
An alternate way of solving this question is to first of all, find the product of the given numbers.
Thus, we get,
The first number: $44 \times 2 = 88$
The second number: $11 \times 4 = 44$
Now, in order to find that how much is 88 more than 44, we will simply subtract the second number from the first one.
Thus, we get,
$88 - 44 = 44$
Therefore, the first product $44 \times 2$ is more than the second product $11 \times 4$ by 44.
Hence, this is the required answer.
In mathematics, to subtract means to take away from a group or a number of things. When we subtract, the number of things in the group reduces or becomes less. The minuend, subtrahend and difference are parts of a subtraction problem.
