Homework Statement


I was given the reaction in the attachment, and asked to find the product.

2. The attempt at a solution
My understanding is that water can open epoxide rings, in an acidic environment. And so, I would figure that the product is 1-methyl-1,2-cyclohexanediol. I don't know what the stereochemistry would be.

Any help?
Thanks,
Peter
