The ACOT function in Microsoft Excel is an inverse cotangent function that returns the inverse cotangent of a number, expressed in radians. In other words, it calculates the angle whose cotangent is a given number.

To use the ACOT function, you need to enter the formula =ACOT(number) in the cell where you want the result to appear, replacing “number” with the value for which you want to find the inverse cotangent.

### Here are ten examples of using the ACOT function in Microsoft Excel:

The `ACOT`

function in Microsoft Excel calculates the inverse cotangent of a number, in radians.

To use the `ACOT`

function, simply enter `=ACOT(number)`

in a cell, where `number`

is the argument you want to find the inverse cotangent of.

Here are some examples of how you can use the `ACOT`

function in Microsoft Excel:

`=ACOT(1)`

returns`45°`

or`0.785398163 radians`

.`=ACOT(-1)`

returns`-45°`

or`-0.785398163 radians`

.`=ACOT(0)`

returns`90°`

or`1.570796327 radians`

.`=ACOT(2)`

returns`30°`

or`0.523598775 radians`

.`=ACOT(-2)`

returns`-30°`

or`-0.523598775 radians`

.`=ACOT(0.5)`

returns`63.43494882°`

or`1.107148718 radians`

.`=ACOT(-0.5)`

returns`-63.43494882°`

or`-1.107148718 radians`

.`=ACOT(0.25)`

returns`69.11208295°`

or`1.249045772 radians`

.`=ACOT(-0.25)`

returns`-69.11208295°`

or`-1.249045772 radians`

.`=ACOT(10)`

returns`6.19236561°`

or`0.1047197551 radians`

.

Similar functions include `ATAN`

(inverse tangent), `ASIN`

(inverse sine), and `ACOS`

(inverse cosine). Each of these functions calculates the inverse trigonometric value of a number.
