Answer:

#sqrt(10)xxsqrt(8)=4sqrt(5)#

Explanation:

#color(red)(sqrt(10))xxcolor(blue)(sqrt(8))#

#color(white)("XX")=color(red)(sqrt(2)*sqrt(5))xxcolor(blue)(sqrt(2)*sqrt(2)^2)#

#color(white)("XX")=color(red)(sqrt(2))*color(blue)(sqrt(2)*2)*color(red)(sqrt(5))#

#color(white)("XX")=2*color(blue)(2)*color(red)(sqrt(5))#

#color(white)("XX")=4sqrt(5)#
