$\sin{\theta} \cot{\theta}=\cos\theta$ Refer to the step-by-step part below for the proof.
Work on the left hand side: Step 1: By definition, replace $\cot\theta$ with $\frac{\cos\theta}{\sin\theta}$ Hence, $\sin\theta\cot\theta=\sin\theta\times\frac{\cos\theta}{\sin\theta}$ Step 2: Cancel out $\sin\theta$ Hence, $\sin\theta\cot\theta=\cos\theta$
