You can use the pow() function defined in math.h.  pow(x,y )This computes the value of x to the power of y (x^y).

The cube root of something is simply that thing to the power of 1/3 so you just need to use pow(x,1.0/3.0)

Let me know if you have any questions.

Would you need the function to return an exact value for cbrt(-1000)?
