    I see that it goes -11π, so I believe it's going clockwise around the unit circle and I think it gets to Q3.

    from looking at this problem and taking the information you already have what would you say the answer is? sin(arcsin(-11π/13)

    use the hint i gave you...here's a demo \[\sin (\sin^{-1} ( \frac{\pi}{2} ) ) = \frac{\pi}{2}\] \[\sin^{-1} (\sin ( \frac{2 \pi}{5} ) ) = \frac{2 \pi}{5}\] getting it now?

    \[\sin^{-1} (\sin ( \frac{-11\pi}{3} ) ) = -\frac{11\pi}{3}\] then simplify that you get \[-\frac{2\pi}{3}\] make sense?
