I am completly lost on these differentials! Can anyone help me make sense of them? Especially this question in particular:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

cot(46(deg))

(Sorry, I don't know how to make that small little circle thing that denotes degree)

I'm supposed to use the method of differentials to estimate it to 4 decimal places.

Thanks!
