    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

    ‭1.6573919140585721071903969967202‬....

    1.65739

    Round to the 4th place

    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
