Transform the equation like this.... sin(90-3x)=sinx then the rest is easy.............

How did you get sin(90-3X) ?

I don't understand why some people complicate things to such extend that their advises become useless for the students.

as I said cos3x=sin(90-3x) this is a formula of basic trigonometry no doubt about that.

then the equation is transformed to sin(90-3x) =sinx

this yields two formulas of general solutions..

1. 90-3x =(360)κ +x

2. 90-3x = (360)k+(180-x)

where k is an arbitrary integer...that is to be chosen to fit your given interval.....

no need to expand and get a qubic equation...........................
