I am suppose to determine if rolle's theorem applies to the fuction and solve

$\displaystyle f(x)=1-x^{2/3}$ in the inverval [-1,1]

Mathab says the assumptions for the Theorem have not been satisfied. I am under the impression they are satisfied. I was wonderifing if someone could provide and explanation as to why the theorem has not been satisfied.
