Quizzical Pursuit - The Architecture Puzzler
by Dave Guadagni
Answer for Last Week's Puzzler
A 12 in 12 roof slope is 45 degrees.
What is the angle of a 24 in 12 slope?
What are the rise and run of a 90-degree slope?
A 24 in 12 slope is about 63 degrees. A 90-degree slope is vertical and would have an infinite rise with a zero run.
