    it's \[\cot(-\frac{5}{4}\pi) = \frac{\cos(-\frac{5}{4}\pi)}{\sin(-\frac{5}{4}\pi)}\] can you find those?

    yeah I figured that, my point was that \[\cos(-\frac{5}{4}\pi)=\cos(\frac{5}{4}\pi)=\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\] and \[\sin(-\frac{5}{4}\pi)=-\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\]

    I was thinking that the - 5/4 pi cancels out for some reason
