    Oh ok, yeah. The tangent is equal to the opposite divided by adjacent

    so If we try to find the angle of Y we look and see that 6 is opposite of angle Y and 8 is adjacent of angle Y

    the answer you guys have is correct for tangent. The question asks for cotangent, so just take the reciprocal
