Try with Hints


Here first differentiate $f(x)$

Then equate the terms of $f'(x)$ containing $x$ to $0$ and find all possible values of $x$,since your answer is in terms of $n$ no need to perform any kind of operations on $n$

Now equating $x$ we get $x=0,\frac{1}{2},1$

Now put each of these values of $x$ in $f(x)$ and see for which value of $x$ you get the maximum value of $f(x)$

you will get the maximum value of $f(x)$ for $x=\frac{1}{2}$ that is $\frac{1}{4^n}$
