We have cos x = -4/5. Also 180< x< 270. For these values of x sin x is negative and so is cos x.

We use the relation (cos x)^2 + (sin x)^2 = 1

=> (-4/5)^2 + (sin x)^2 = 1

=> (sin x)^2 = 1 - (16 / 25)

=> (sin x)^2 = 9/25

=> sin x = -3/5

tan x = sin x / cos x = (-3/5)/(-4/5) = 3/4

cot x = cos x / sin x = 4/3

**sin x = -3/5 , tan x = 3/4 and cot x = 4/3.**
