    Yeah. Use it. You should get 4(lnx)³ · (1/x)

    Why would they want you to apply Logarithmic Differentiation to this problem? Very strange... Ok I guess we can do it though :\ Rewrite \(\large f(x)\) as \(\large y\). Then take the log (base e) of both sides. \[\large \ln y=\ln\left[(\ln x)^4\right]\]

    Using a rule of logarithms,\[\large \color{royalblue}{\log(b^\color{orangered}{a})=\color{orangered}{a}\log(b)}\] We can bring that 4 out front.

    This is going to be a much more difficult problem using Logarithmic Differentiation. I'm not sure why the directions would suggest you do this :) lol

    Take the derivative of both sides with respect to x. Wanna take a shot at that part? :) What do you get on the left side of the equation?
