    Ok. Derivative of ln(x) is 1/x. Then using the chain rule you multiply by -2x since you must calculate the derivative of the inside of your function. So your first derivative is (1/x)*(-2x), which can be further simplified. Use this process and continue until you've found the fourth derivative.
