Find the equation of a tangent line at the curve at point (-3√3, 1)

x^(1/3) + y^(1/3) = 4

2. Relevant equations

Point-slope:

y-1=m(x-1)

3. The attempt at a solution

I took the derivative of that equation and resulted in

-y^(2/3)/x^(2/3)

When I tried plugging in x and y to get slope, the equation got very messy and I couldn't get a number out of it. Can anyone help me out?
