We take the reciprocal of $\tan\theta$ to get $\cot\theta= 0.59600119$

Work Step by Step

Step 1: $\cot\theta=\frac{1}{\tan\theta}$ Step 2: Since $\tan\theta=1.6778490$, we can insert this in the identity above: $\cot\theta=\frac{1}{\tan\theta}=\frac{1}{1.6778490}$ Step 3: Now, using a calculator, we can solve $\frac{1}{1.6778490}$ Step 4: According to the calculator, $\frac{1}{1.6778490}=0.59600119$
