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

The function f(x) =ln(10 - x) is represented as a power series in the form

f(x) = (sum from 0 to infinity) of c[tex]_{n}[/tex]x[tex]^{n}[/tex]

Find the first few coefficients in the power series.

3. The attempt at a solution

I know how to find the coefficients in a normal looking taylor series (for example, 3/(1 - 2x)^2 or something) but I don't have any idea where to start for a natural log...

for the record

C0 = 2.30258509299

C1 = -0.1

C2 = -0.005

C3 = -0.000333333333333

C4 = -2.5E-05

Radius of convergence = 10
