Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

First, rewrite the expression under the radical as:

#sqrt(104) => sqrt(4 * 26)#

Now, use this rule for radicals to simplify the expression:

#sqrt(color(red)(a) * color(blue)(b)) = sqrt(color(red)(a)) * sqrt(color(blue)(b))#

#sqrt(color(red)(4) * color(blue)(26)) = sqrt(color(red)(4)) * sqrt(color(blue)(26)) => 2sqrt(26)#
