(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I need to find where these curves intersect:

x+y = 2y^2

y = x^3

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

So I try to write both in terms of y, I get

2y^2 - y = y^(1/3)

I try to factor

2y^2 - y - y^(1/3) = 0

y(2y - 1 - y^(-2/3)) = 0 ??

What do I do next?
