    Problem regarding Trig Identities

    I need to use trig identities to find the indicated trig functions. The problem that I'm stuck on gives me that tan(theta)=5 ; with this im supposed to find cot(theta) cos(theta) tan(90- theta) and csc(theta). I am not really sure how to approach this, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

    \tan(\theta) = 5

    \cot(\theta) = \frac{1}{\tan(\theta)}

    any easier?
