    I'll assume this is the first time you've encountered trig.

    So first you should know: Cot x = 1/tanx

    Now multiply cotx with tanx....

    Giving us tanx/tanx = 1

    By definition, \cot x = \frac{1}{\tan x}. Multiply this by \tan x and what happens?

    I can't see you, so I don't know. Why would you ask such a stupid question? Unless you're stupid.
