    take the cube root of -8 that is -2 and the x power of 9 divided by 1/3 power=3

    1.2599(1,2599)(1.2599)=1.2599^3 =2

    a god example is cube root of -8 that is (-8)^1/3=-2 to check this (-2)x(-2)x(-2)=-8

    (-2)(-2)(-2)= (-2)^3=-8 this is a cubed of -2,,, now its reversed is the cube root cube root of -8=(-8)^(1/3) =-2

    if (-b)^1/3=-a then (-a)^3=-b

    algebraically,,,,if (-b)^1/3=-a here lets put both sides to the power of 3 [ (-b)^1/3 ]^3=[-a]^3 [ (-b)^3/3 ]=[-a]^3 [ (-b)^1 ]=[-a]^3
