Given csc(x) = 25/20. Use appropriate pythagorean identity to find the value of cot(x).

 

I think that cot(x) = 15/20 but I'm not completely sure

 

Thank you!

cosecant = hypotenuse / opposite  

 

hyp = 25  

opp = 20  

 

So the adjacent side = square root of [ (25)2 – (20)2 ] = sqrt(225)     

 

adj = 15  

 

cotangent = adjacent / opposite  

 

cot = 15 / 20
