When you see list of results click on:

and click option =

After few seconds you will see solution.

Then click option:

let x^(2/3) = y

then we have

y^2 + y - 28 = 0

y = (-1 ± √113)/2

so x^(2/3) = (1+√113)/2

x = [(1 + √113)/2]^(3/2) = appr. 10.566

or x^(2/3) = (-1 - √113)/2 , which has no solution
