Suppose F=Q(a_1,a_2,...,a_n) where a_i^2 is in Q for i=1,2,...,n. Prove that 2^(1/3)

is not in F.

3. The attempt at a solution

Someone suggested the tower law.. I have no idea what that is. Isn't this true because if 2^(1/3) was in F then 2^(2/3) must be in Q, but 2^(2/3) is irrational so it cannot be so 2^(2/3) is not in F. Is this right?
