$\large \begin{cases} {x^2_1 + px_1 +q = x_2} \\ {x^2_2 + px_2 +q = x_3} \\ {x^2_3 + px_3 +q = x_1} \\ \end{cases}$

Let $$p,q$$ be real numbers with $$\alpha < \beta$$ be the roots of the equation $$x^2 +(p-1)x+q=0$$.

What is the maximum number of solutions of the system of equations above where $$x_1,x_2,x_3 \in [\alpha,\beta]$$ is?
