Opening the brackets
8^1/3 = 2
3 sqroot21 ^1/3 = 21^1/9
We get

Cancel 21^1/9 with each other

x= \((8+3\sqrt{21})^{\frac{1}{3}}+ (8-3\sqrt{21})^{\frac{1}{3}}\)

\((a+b)^3= a^3+b^3+3*a*b*(a+b)\)

\(x^3\)= \((8+3\sqrt{21})\)+\((8-3\sqrt{21})\)+\(3*[8+3\sqrt{21}]^{1/3}\)*\([8-3\sqrt{21}]^{1/3} x\)

\(x^3= 16-15x\)

x=1
