    \(\huge \sqrt{16 \times 2} = \sqrt{16} \times \sqrt{2} \)

    we can do it like this too \(\huge \sqrt{8 \times 4} = \sqrt{(4 \times 2) \times 4} = \sqrt{4} \times \sqrt{4} \times \sqrt{2} \)

    oops it didn't fit \(\large \sqrt{8 \times 4} = \sqrt{(4 \times 2) \times 4} = \sqrt{4} \times \sqrt{4} \times \sqrt{2} \)

    I think the rest looks pretty obvious and you can do it by yourself
