Use Pythagorus. Measure the horizontal length from the plumb ridge cut to the position where the horizontal birds mouth touches the top plate on the wall closest to the ridge. This point should be 1 1/2" in from the outside edge of the wall. This is your run.
Now measure the vertical height from the top of your wall plate to the where the bottom of your vertical cut from the rafter will end up on your ridge. This is your rise.
A squared plus B squared equals C squared. Get your calculator out, if the run is 12 feet and the rise is 4 feet, then 12 squared (144) + 4 squared (16) equals 160. The square root of 160 is 12.65 ft. or 12 feet 7.79" long. There are other ways, but this is most accurate. Make sure your ridge is parallel to you wall.
