Answer:

The expression can be evaluated to #2.19#.

Explanation:

#=>sqrt(20log2 - log16)#

Use the rule #alogn = logn^a#.

#=>sqrt(log(2^20) - log16)#

#=> sqrt(log1,048,576 - log16)#

Now, use the rule #loga - logn = log(a/n)#.

#=>sqrt(log(65536))#

This can be evaluated, but it cannot be simplified to exact form.

We have

#=>2.19#

Hopefully this helps!
