I would like to superimpose Cos[x] {x,Pi/4,Pi/2} right on top of
Sin[x] {x,0,Pi/4}. I think the x axis would only be a length of Pi/4
and it would show both Cos[x] {x,Pi/4,Pi/2} and Sin[x] {x,0,Pi/4}.

I would also wanted to superimpose Cos[x] {x,Pi/4,Pi/2} on top of
Cos[x] {x,0,Pi/4}. Using the methods most people have been giving me I
would get Cos[x]{x,0,Pi/2}. I would like to put the 2 plots on top of
each other.

Thank you all for your patience and time with me,
