Hint: Use SohCahToa, and recall that cot(x)=\(\Large \frac{1}{tan(x)}\)

x can be any value, but can apply to \(\theta\) in your diagram.

oh ok ....1 min
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok ....im confused as how to solve this but i have cot(3)=0.0524
mathmate
  • mathmate
Do you know SohCahToa? Start with finding tan\(\theta\)!
mathmate
  • mathmate
Neither tan nor cot equals 0.0524. You can find it directly from the diagram as a fraction, without using a calculator.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so does tan=4/3
anonymous
  • anonymous
tan=opp/adj right??
mathmate
  • mathmate
Exactly! Now you can calculate cot(x)=1/tan(x)
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol what is cot
mathmate
  • mathmate
cot is cotangent, basically the reciprocal of tangent.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so if it is the reciprocal then that means that cot is 3/4 ??
mathmate
  • mathmate
Exactly!
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 3/4(x)=4/3
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the answer is 3/4
mathmate
  • mathmate
That is correct!
