I attempt to differentiate the following question in Mathematica 5.2 but it seem it does not give the result expected.

Given y= (1/Sqrt(3x^2+1))^3

In mathematica I put:

D[1/Sqrt[3x^2+1],x]

But it seem cannot get the required answer of:

-9x/(3x^2+1)^5/2

Please help on how to make the program to get this answer. Pls note that I am a newbie in this product so I am still learning on how to use it.

Thanks
Christopher Foo
