cot tan help °.
Hello! I'm new to the forum, and really really happy I found it!
I couldn't find an intro section, so thought I'd say hello here :).
I understand if someone asks, what is the sin(36°)?
But if I have a problem
cot(68°36') what does that mean? Does it mean the cot of 68.36°? Or the supplementary of 68°, and the complimentary of 36°? And how would I solve for it? By taking the tan of the supplementary and complimentary?
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
This is a notation for degree's minutes and seconds

So you have 68 degrees and 36 minutes this is the same as
Oh! Now I understand! Thank you. And the cot of 68.6° would be the tan of the reference angle?
