## Homework Statement

Question: Find the value of sinθ if cosθ=−1/4 and θ is in Quadrant II

I have not done TRIG in a long time. Given this question, what should I read over/review ? I don't remember how to solve these types of questions?

## The Attempt at a Solution

Not sure what kind of attempt I can do... I have to memorize the unit circle correct?

P.S. - Thanks to Mark an Sammy for recent help - Got 93% on my first of 3 midterms :)

Might be good to draw a picture and remember the definition of cos in terms of lengths of sides of a right triangle. That should get you going in the right direction.
