#### Explanation:

We can use some rules to find out.

First rule we'll use is

We can invert both sides:

Now to the exponent. We're asked to cube

With odd exponents, sign is preserved. What I mean by that is that when we have

What this means is that

Here's a graph to show the solution:

graph{(y-x^-(3/5))((x-1)^2+(y-1)^2-.1)=0}
