It's a "function of a function", so you need to use the chain rule in some way or other

Post some working if you're still stuck, and someone will take a look at it.

So if we left f(x) = 2e - x, then you want to do d/dx(2 ln f(x)).

Which is the same as 2 d/dx(ln f(x))).

But the derivatve of ln f(x) is f ' (x) / f(x)
