Compute the cotangent of x, where x is in radians


  1. Compute cotangent of an angle in radians:

    julia> cot(0.5)

    This example computes the cotangent of 0.5 radians.

  2. Evaluate cotangent for negative angles:

    julia> cot(-1.2)

    It calculates the cotangent of -1.2 radians.

  3. Use cotangent within an expression:
    julia> x = 1.0;
    julia> y = cot(x) + 2 * cot(2x);
    julia> y

    In this example, the cotangent function is used within a larger expression to compute the value of y.

Common mistake example:

julia> cot("1.5")
ERROR: MethodError: no method matching cot(::String)

In this case, the input to the cot function is not a numeric value. The cot function expects a numeric argument, so make sure to provide a valid numeric value when using cot.
