Note that a cosine function is the ratio of the side adjacent to the given angle to the hypotenuse of the triangle.
`cos theta = (adjacent side)/(hypoten u se)`
And the given value of cos theta is:
`cos theta = 2/3`
Base on this, the length of the side adjacent to theta is 2 units and the hypotenuse is 3 units.
In order to solve the value of 1/(cot theta), the length of the side opposite to theta must be determined....
