Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So that's a yes? If I'm entering it into my calculator (there is no cot function), I enter\[\cot(\theta) = \tan^{1}(\theta)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can't write it as \[\tan ^{1} \theta \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Isn't that the same thing...? Doesn't: \[\frac{ 1 }{ \tan(\theta) } = \tan ^{1}(\theta)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope. to find cot(theta), do this: 1/(tan(theta))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when we take tan function from one side of equality to other then we write tan^1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you use tan^1 in something like... To solve for x if tan(x)=a, then x=tan^1(a)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can you say\[\csc ^{4}(\theta) = \frac{ 1 }{ \sin ^{4}(\theta) }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep. in calculator, that would be: 1/(sin(theta))^4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01 is a special case in trigonometric functions.. 1 corresponds to inverse function.. thus for 1/sin, we use cosec and likewise..
