    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?
