Thanks for the query.

Other than the solution provided by Tejas Naik in the comments, the below can also be a solution to the puzzle without using the "to the power of" expression with only the basic expressions (addition, subtraction, multiplication & division) and parenthesis.

(1 + 2 + 6 + 7) X 5 X 2 = 160.
