# Prove that $\sqrt[3]p+\sqrt[3]{p^5}$ is irrational if $p$ is prime [closed]

Prove that $$\sqrt[3]p+\sqrt[3]{p^5}$$ is irrational when $$p$$ is a prime.

First I suppose $$x=\sqrt[3]p+\sqrt[3]{p^5}$$. Cubing gives $$x^3=p+p^5+p^2x$$ And then what properties of prime, and how to test its irrationallity?

By Eisenstein's criterion, $$X^3-p$$ is irreducible over $$\Bbb Q$$. Therefore $$1$$, $$\sqrt[3]p$$ and $$\sqrt[3]{p^2}$$ are linearly independent over $$\Bbb Q$$.
Now observe that $$x=\sqrt[3]p+p\sqrt[3]{p^2}$$.
