Convert the minutes and seconds to degrees

31 degrees 6 minutes 18 seconds =>

31 degress + 6/60 degrees + 18/60^2 degrees =>

31 + 6/60 + 18/3600 degrees =>

31 + 1/10 + 1/200 degrees =>

31 + 0.1 + 0.005 degrees =>

31.105 degrees

cot(31.105 degrees) =>

1 / tan(31.105 degrees)

Make sure your calculator is in degree mode

6' = 6/60º = 0.1º

18" = 18/3600 = 1/200 = 0.005º

add them up to get 31.105º

tan 31.105º = 0.6033576

1/0.6033576 = 1.6574
