# Cot

## Y ## What is the Cot Function?

The cotangent function, also known as cot, is a mathematical function that returns the ratio of the adjacent side to the opposite side of a right triangle. In other words, it is the reciprocal of the tangent function. The cot function is often used in trigonometry and is defined as 1/tan(x).

## How to Use the Power Fx Cot Function in Power Apps

To use the Power Fx Cot function in Power Apps, follow the steps below:

1. Open Power Apps and create a new canvas app.

2. Add a text input control to the canvas app.

3. Add a button control to the canvas app.

4. Select the button control and go to the OnSelect property.

5. Enter the following formula:

Cot(Value(TextInput1.Text))

This formula will take the value entered in the text input control and return the cotangent of that value in radians.

6. Save and run the app.

## Using the Power Fx Cot Function in Power Apps – Example

Let’s take a look at an example of how to use the Power Fx Cot function in Power Apps. We will create an app that calculates the cotangent of an angle entered in degrees.

1. Open Power Apps and create a new canvas app.

2. Add a text input control to the canvas app and name it “Angle”.

3. Add a label control to the canvas app and name it “Cot”.

4. Add a button control to the canvas app and name it “Calculate”.

5. Select the button control and go to the OnSelect property.

6. Enter the following formula:

This formula will take the value entered in the text input control, convert it to radians, and return the cotangent of that value.

7. Select the label control and go to the Text property.

8. Enter the following formula:

“Cot(” & TextInput1.Text & “) = ” & Cot(Radians(Value(TextInput1.Text)))

This formula will display the cotangent of the angle entered in the text input control.

9. Save and run the app.
