COTH function returns the hyperbolic cotangent of any real number. The hyperbolic cotangent is defined as the ratio of the hyperbolic cosine to the hyperbolic sine of a given angle or value. This function can be used in various mathematical calculations such as in calculus and in solving problems related to physics and engineering.

COTH not working? Here are some common mistakes people make when using the
COTH Google Sheets Formula:
Incorrect argument type
The value provided to COTH() must be a numeric value. If a non-numeric value is used, this error will occur. To fix this, ensure that the argument provided is a number.
Divide by zero error
If the argument provided to COTH() is zero, this error will occur. To fix this, provide a non-zero argument.
The following functions are similar to
COTH or are often used with it in a formula:
SINHfunction returns the hyperbolic sine of any real number. The hyperbolic sine is a mathematical function that describes the shape of a hanging cable supported at its ends and acted upon by a uniform gravitational force. In Google Sheets, it is most commonly used in mathematical and statistical formulas.
COSfunction in Google Sheets returns the cosine of an angle provided in radians. It is commonly used in trigonometry to calculate the cosine of an angle. The function takes one parameter, the angle in radians.
TANfunction returns the tangent of an angle specified in radians. Tangent is the ratio of the length of the opposite side to the length of the adjacent side of a right-angled triangle. This function is commonly used in trigonometry and geometry calculations.
ACOTHfunction returns the hyperbolic arccotangent of a number. It is the inverse function of the hyperbolic cotangent. This function is useful in trigonometry and calculus.
