    \(y=(x+1)(x^2-1)^{1/3} \\ y'=(2x/3)(x+1)(x^2-1)^{-2/3}+(x^2-1) \\ y'=(x^2-1)[(2x/3)(x+1)(x^2-1)^{-2/3-1}+1]\) i think u had doubt in the last step i did .... ?

    the last step to get it into that simpler form... im not sure why i keep messing it up... its like when i set it = to 0 to find critical points i always do it right but for some reason when its to the power of 1/3 i miss up

    for x^2-1, i get x=1 or -1 for [...], there is no real solution....
