I'd be thankful if someone could explain to me how to get the result with minus sign in front in this "rationalize the denominator" task: $\dfrac{\sqrt[3]2-\sqrt[3]3}{\sqrt[3]4-\sqrt[3]6+\sqrt[3]9}$ Wolfram Alpha.

I get the solution with the numerator numbers switched (therefore the minus sign)...

Ehm, as soon as I posted this question, I realized that I'm actually right, I solved it correct, I thought I didn't get the minus. I guess it's late, just delete this...
