## CDiego 3 years ago Given the triangle below, what is cot∡B?

1. CDiego

2. CDiego

cotangent is adjacent/opposite so whywouldnt the answer be 7/4?

3. chandhuru

cot theta = adjacent side / opposite side

4. AravindG

lemme help you het to it, tell me what is the difficulty you have?

5. AravindG

*get

8. chandhuru

first find the other side measure using pythogoras theorem then use cot theta = adjacent / opposite side

9. chandhuru

@CDiego 4/7 is not the answer..

10. CDiego

I dont really understand what the procedure is to get the answer

11. AravindG

do you know what cotangent is?

12. chandhuru

first find the length of the third side using pythgorus theorem..

13. CDiego

sorry i was having internet difficulties.... I do understand what contagen is though! Oh i see my issue instead of putting in the adjacent side in the equation i put the hypotenuse

14. chandhuru

yaa ... u find the adjacent side and find cot theta

15. CDiego

so the third side is: the square root of 33

16. CDiego

so would it be the square root of 33/4?

17. chandhuru

yaaa..

18. CDiego

okay perfect thank y'all!
