How to Calculate Cotangent 
by aafr in Education 

Cotangent is one of the basic functions of trigonometry. (Some of the
others are sine, cosine, secant, cosecant and tangent.) The cotangent is
defined as the ratio of the length of the adjacent leg of the triangle to
the length of the opposite leg.Difficulty:ModerateInstructions Things

How to Find the Cotangent on a Graphing Calculator 
by UglyCasanova in Education 

In trigonometry, the cotangent is the reciprocal of the tangent. The
formula for determining the tangent is the opposite side divided by the
adjacent side of a triangle. So, since the cotangent is the reciprocal,
then the formula for determining the cotangent is the adjacent side divided
by the opposite side of the triangle. When inputting cotangent into a
graphing calculator, you need to know the

How to Graph Cosecant, Secant & Cotangent 
by skulldrinker in Education 

The two basic trigonometry functions are the sine and cosine functions. The
sine function is the "y" coordinate of an angle on a unit circle, and the
cosine function is its "x" coordinate. The other four trigonometry
functions can be derived from these two functions. Cosecant is the
multiplicative inverse of the sine function, secant is the multiplicative
inverse of the cosine function, tangent is


How to Graph Tangent & Cotangent Functions 
by Barry in Education 

The tangent is a trigonometric function defined as the sine divided by the
cosine. Another way of defining it is the tangent of an angle is the ratio
of the side opposite the angle divided by the side adjacent to the angle in
a right triangle. For example, in a triangle with sides of 3, 4 and 5
inches, the angles will be 90 degrees, 53 degrees and 37 degrees .The side
opposite the 37degree angle

How to Calculate Cosecant, Secant & Cotangent 
by boomhower in Education 

The cosecant, secant and cotangent are all reciprocal trigonometric
functions. They are calculated in similar ways to the conventional
functions sine, cosine and tangent to solve for unknown angles. Although a
basic problem, solving for values in right triangles represents the core of
trigonometry with applications in many different science and engineering
fields. Before you can use any trigonome

How to Find Sine, Cosine, Tangent and Cotangent 
by sarah in Education 

Sine, tangent, cotangent and cosine are all functions when dealing with
right triangles. Sine, tangent and cosine are the primary functions of
trigonometry. When you see these functions in trigonometry problems, these
functions are written as sin, tan and cos. Although graphing calculators
can figure sine, tangent,cotangent and cosine for you, figuring them
yourself is not difficult once you un
