(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The Taylor series for f(x) = ln(sec(x)) at a = 0 is sum_(n=0to infinity) c(sub n) (x)^n.

Find the first few coefficients.

3. The attempt at a solution

I've been trying to figure out where to start by looking it up...I've seen instructions that each coefficient is just the nth derivative of the function, other's saying it's the nth derivative divided by n!, others say it's the nth derivative times n...and nothing comes out properly.

Help!
