\[\cot(\frac{-5\pi}{4})=-\cot(\frac{5\pi}{4})\]

sin, csc, tan, cot are all odd functions cos, sec are even functions

anyways you should see 5pi/4 on the unit circle

(x,y) x is the cosine value y is the sine value

so it was the one with the twos right on the left side
freckles
  • freckles
both x and y are -sqrt(2)/2 there \[\cot(-\frac{5\pi}{4})=-\cot(\frac{5\pi}{4})=- \frac{\cos(\frac{5\pi}{4})}{\sin(\frac{5\pi}{4})}=-\frac{\frac{-\sqrt{2}}{2}}{\frac{-\sqrt{2}}{2}}\]
