Hello !
Your solution is ok only if a end b are positive real numbers !
Don't forget that (a*b)^n is not a^n * b^n if n is rational and a and b not
real positive !
So if you write :
PowerExpand[Simplify[(a^(1/3) - b^(1/3)) * ((a^(2/3) + (a*b)^(1/3) +
b^(2/3))/(a-b))^(1/3),{a>0,b>0}]]
You will get what you want !

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!
