Ans:Hello student, please find answer to your question
Two curves are intersecting, so
cosx = sin3x
cosx = cos(\frac{\pi }{2}-3x)
x = 2n\pi \pm (\frac{\pi }{2}-3x)
x\pm 3x = 2n\pi \pm \frac{\pi }{2}
4x = 2n\pi + \frac{\pi }{2}
n = 0
\Rightarrow x = \frac{\pi }{8}
n = -1
x = \frac{-3\pi }{8}
-2x = 2n\pi -\frac{\pi }{2}
n = 0
x = \frac{\pi }{4}
So there are three points of intersection.
