tan ( x+ pi/2) = tan ( 90 + x) since the angle is in the second quadrant .where tan is negative. thus the negative sign. and the angle from the horizontal is 180(90+x) =90x..hence it changes to cot therefore tan(90=x) =  cotx

To cut out on the theory, mathematically you can prove it like this : tan(pi/2 +x) = tan(pi/2  (x)) = cot(x) = cotx

tan(x + pi/2) = cotx it another way of saying cot x flipped along x axis and shifted pi/2 to right or left. I think.
