Reiny
you will need your calculator
51°15' = 51.25°
25°18' = 25.3°
so we need:
tan 51.25° + 1/tan 25.3°
you do the buttonpushing

I'm trying to verify these trigonometric identities. 1. 1 / [sec(x) * tan(x)] = csc(x)  sin(x) 2. csc(x)  sin(x) = cos(x) * cot(x) 3. 1/tan(x) + 1/cot(x) = tan(x) + cot(x) 4. csc(x)/sec(x) = cot(x)
