Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

We can rewrite this expression as:

#sqrt(160) => sqrt(16 * 10)#

Now, we can 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)(16) * color(blue)(10)) => sqrt(color(red)(16)) * sqrt(color(blue)(10)) => 4sqrt(10)#
