Given function, show that

Hello, I can't seem figure out how to do this one.

Problem: e^y=e^x+e^-x, show that d^2*y/d*x^2+(dy/dx)^2 - 1=0

I know that I have to find a derivative, but have been failing do it for a few days now.

Re: Given function, show that

y = ln(e^x + e^-x)

Can you continue from there?
