Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

cot(90-A) which in this case to keep it simple A=x

cot(90-x)

tanx

reference: http://www.mathwords.com/t/trig_identities.htm

Most of these types of things are rules and you must memorize I struggled with the same thing. You can also graph both of them to see that they overlap since cot is 1/tanx by have tan(90-x)=cotx and cot(90-x)=tanx

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
