Hi there if $\displaystyle sin(\theta) = \frac{3}{11}$

You must consider a right angled triangle and the ratio

$\displaystyle sin(\theta) = \frac{opposite}{hypotenuse}$

Using pythagora's theorem the thrid side must be as follows:

$\displaystyle \sqrt{11^2-3^2}$

$\displaystyle \sqrt{112}$

Now you can use these to find

$\displaystyle cos(\theta) = \frac{adjacent}{hypotenuse}$

$\displaystyle sin(\theta) = \frac{opposite}{adjacent}$
