# Math Help - Derivative

1. ## Derivative

$y = \sqrt{5x^6-12}$

$y = (5x^6-12)^{1/2}$

$y ' = \frac{1}{2}(5x^6-12)^{-1/2}*30x^5$

$y ' = 30x^5\Big(\frac{1}{2\sqrt{5x^6-12}}\Big)$

Am I doing this right?

Do they support the square root function though? if they do, how would I write it in a language this site will understand?
