    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?

    Answer: 

    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.
