I am a little weak on math &/or algebra so I pose this simple question. I I want to place an upright piece at a 10 deg angle how do I figure what angle to cut the bottom of that piece? I believe that it is simple geometry requried to know the correct formula to get to 90deg???.
thanks

I agree with Transit.
Cut a 10 degree off the bottom.

very cool, I understand visuals the best. The total must equal 90 deg. I was overthinging it
Thanks

Think that’s cool? Some day I’ll teach you how to measure the height of a building with an 8-1/2 x 11-inch sheet of paper and milk straw.
