I can't figure this question, please help me. arcsin(sin(-3pi/5))

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)?
ans: -1.25663706 rad
Please don't just give out answers to homework problems. This is against MHF policy and will not be tolerated. -Dan

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!
