## The graph of the cube root

The graph of *y* = the cube root of *x* is an odd function: It resembles, somewhat, twice its partner, the square root, with the square root curve spun around the origin into the third quadrant and made a bit steeper. You can take cube roots of negative numbers, so you can find negative *x-* and *y-* values for points on this curve.

Both curves go through the point (1, 1).
