    The numerator has the form \(a^2-b^2=(a+b)(a-b)\).

    If you let \(u=x^{1/3}\), then your numerator will become \(u^2-4\). Can you factor that?

    its x^(2/3), but nonetheless, (u+2)(u-2)

    You have to let \(u=x^{1/3}\) because then \(u^2=x^{2/3}\)... now re-substitute and solve your exercise.
