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!
