# How do you find the value of #cot 300^@#?

##### 1 Answer

To find the value of

**Note:** Remember that when you write it with

Let's first look at the two easiest ways to write this:

and

An important thing to remember is in which quadrants will a trigonometric function be positive. Here's an illustration:

Here,

**A** stands for **all.**

**S** stands for **sin.**

**T ** stands for **tan.**

**C** stands for **cos.**

This means that

**all** fuctions are positive in the first quadrant,

the **sin** function and it's co-function **csc** are positive in the second quadrant,

the **tan** function and it's co-function **cot** are positive in the third quadrant,

the **cos** function and it's co-function **sec** are positive in the fourth quadrant.

One way to remember this arrangement is to recite the sentence:

This tells us which function would be positive in which quadrant.

I personally like to use the sentence

So, let's solve using the first equation.

The angle is greater than **not** positive here, i.e., they are negative.

Also, since you've used

Now, let's solve the second equation.

Here, the angle is expressed with
