    Well the idea is to isolate y right? What would be your first step?

    You have a cube root. How would you get rid of that?

    For instance, if you have a square root you have to square to get rid of the square root.

    Keep the negative inside the brackets when you square, so it would be like (-4)^2 .

    A genral rule is when you square both sides and the negative it attached to a number, You put the negative in brackets and them square it.

    Because when you square you are basically going -4 * -4 which his 16 ( negative * negative is +) .

    If it's a POSITIVE square root then yes, no solutions exist.

    Because when you take the square root of a function it's always in the form of ±√ f(x) . We need to know the proper sign.
