First hint

\(f(x)=xsinx-1=0\)

which can be written as sinx=\(\frac{1}{x}\) and f(x) has solution at those points where sinx and \(\frac{1}{x}\) intersects

So let us draw the graph

here we see two graphs y=sin x and y=\(\frac{1}{x}\)

Second Hint

Number of roots - graph

both graphs intersect at two points between \((0,2\pi]\)

Final Step

or, number of roots is 2.
