Hello

How can I simplify the following term?

(a^(1/3) - b^(1/3)) * ((a^(2/3) + (ab)^(1/3) + b^(2/3))/(a-b))^(1/3)

If I use the commands "Simplify", "FullSimplify", "Expand" or "PowerExpand"
mathematica doesn't find the solution.
The solution is (a^(1/3)-b^(1/3))^(2/3)
If it's possible to find the solution in mathematica could mathematica show
me the way this solution?

Thanks for your answers!
