Subject:  trying to understand why I get 2.2204e16 rather than 0 
Date:  Wed, 3 Aug 2016 17:41:35 0700 (PDT) 
If I enter cot (pi/4)1 I get 2.2204e16 >From my trig days I remember cot (pi/4) is 1 and 11 is 0 Octave also confirms cot (pi/4) is 1 and 11 is 0 so why does Octave spit out 2.2204e16 when cot(pi/4)1 is entered?
