I guess the answer could be this:

 

10√15 - 2√15

 

Am I correct?

See WolframAlpha's various solutions here:

 

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=4%E2%88%9A15+-+10%E2%88%9A3%2F5%C2%A0%2B+3%E2%88%9A60

 

I don't believe yours is correct.... it would simplify to :  8√15

I believe I have settled this one. The issue is interpretation-based. 

 

Cphill's interpretation: \(4\sqrt{15}-\textcolor{red}{\frac{10\sqrt{3}}{5}}+3\sqrt{60}\)

 

ManuelBautista2019: \(4\sqrt{15}-\textcolor{red}{10\sqrt{\frac{3}{5}}}+3\sqrt{60}\)

 

According to my individual calculation, both of you got the correct answer, assuming your interpretation.
