many times the output for a function is given in terms of rational powers of negative one. is there a way to take these powers and make them have an exponent of one? for example, (-1)^(2/3)==.5+Sqrt[3]/2, and this can be confirmed with SetPrecision, but is there a way to do it without recognizing common fractions?
