    You're expected to be familiar with the various standard transformation matrices, including the one for rotation in an anti-clockwise direction by an angle \theta.

    So I suggest you look up the rotation matrix in your notes or textbook and then determine the angle \theta that gives this particular matrix.

    We haven't taken notes on this, nor do we have a textbook. (We use Exeter, which is a bunch of random problems thrown together and bound.)
