Hey TrimHonduras.

Hint: What possible values can arcsin have? Also what sin(-x) in terms of sin(x) and what is sin(pi+x) in terms of sin(x)? - Jul 19th 2013, 10:07 PMbluffyRe: Please help me on my Homework.
ans:

For starters, SURELY you know that sine and arcsine are inverse functions, and so cancel each other out...

So far I got I got that the -3pi/5 falls on QIII, and that my reference angle (theta hat)= 2pi/5. So the answers is -2pi/5.... is this right!
