# How do you find the derivative of  ln(x^3)?

I found $\frac{3}{x}$ using the Chain Rule.
I would use the Chain Rule, deriving the$\ln$ first (blue) and then multiplying by the derivative of the argument (red) to get:
$y ' = \textcolor{b l u e}{\frac{1}{x} ^ 3} \cdot \textcolor{red}{3 {x}^{2}} = \frac{3}{x}$
