Solve for x: x = cotx , where x E [0, pi] --- I have no idea how to solve for 'x' in this equation. Some advice please? Many thanks in advance, dMh

You will need to use a numerical method to solve this, try Newton's or the Bisection method.

I've never heard of either methods. I'm taking "pre-calculus" at the moment and haven't learned too much.
