How to do this? Any particular method?
I tried finding dy/dx and setting it to zero. That gave me a relation (2^sin x)/(2^cos x) = tan x(I couldnt find out x from this). Please help?

Do you have any reason to believe an exact answer is possible?
One obvious attempt to solve this equation is . The solution set to this equation is . One of these is maximum and the other is minimum. Note that there are infinitely many maximums and minimums, as the function has a period of .

Yup, these are solutions to f'(x)=0, but how can we know they're the only solutions, and maximum or minimum of the function ?
