**Transforming the Cotangent Graph **

Cotangent is the reciprocal trig function of tangent function and can be defined as cot(θ) = cos(θ)/sin(θ).

It is an odd function, meaning cot(−θ) = −cot(θ), and it has the property that cot(θ + π) = cot(θ).

Because sine is the denominator, and the function is undefined when sin(θ) = 0, the cotangent graph has vertical asymptotes at all integer multiples of π, when sin(θ) = 0.
