Run is alway 12".
Example 4" (rise)/12" (run)
Measure 4" on one leg of the square and 12" on the other leg. Connect the points and there your angle.

The city park shown at the right has an area of 6889 square meters. The park's length along Front Street is 83 meters. Find the length of the park along Second Avenue. The park is a triangle.

Without knowing some more information, such as either the angle between Front Street and Second Avenue or the length of the third side (or the picture "shown at the right"), this question is impossible to answer.

I can say that it must be at least 186 meters.

Sharp el-501w figure degree on rise run seven inch rise tweve inch run = ? degree

If you have learned about the trigonometric ratios (sine, cosine and tangent) you can use the tangent of the angle.
Let your run be to the right ( along the positive x-axis) and the rise be upwards along the positive y-axis. The tangent of the angle is
tan (theta)=rise/run=7.5/12
If the calculator is set with angle unit in degrees, the angle is obtained as the arc tangent of the (rise/run) value.

theta= arctan(7.5/12)=32.00538321 or about 32 degrees.

The arctan is the inverse of tan. To access it on the calculator press [2nd F][tan]
Depending on the calculator (sorry I do not have your model under my eyes)
Press [2nd F][tan] ( 7.5/12) [=]
or
7.5/12 = then [2nd F][tan] [ALPHA][Ans] [=]

Blade does not square up on c10fsh miter saw

To square up a mite saw blade, you need to eeither move the table or adjust it to be square if it is out in the mitre angle, or if it is out in the bevel angle the whole saw head needs to be adjusted, and this is done via the bevel adjustment at the back of the saw. There may be a bevel stop bolt to return the saw back to 90 degrees if moved to a different bevel angle. Usually the blade itself is not adjusted bu either the saw table or the bevel angle of the saw head itself to correct these issues.

This continues to be the most commonly asked about Curious Village puzzle on FixYa (with a quick search revealing several pages of answers)

As the hints state, all but one square is tilted and each pin can only be used once

The hints also give you the location of three squares and tell you the size and angle of another two squares

As an extra hint, none of the three small tilted squares mentioned in the hints overlap each other (knowing this gives you the location of one more square and just two possible locations for another)

From here, the rest should be easy (with eight pins to form two squares)

Make sure to use all the pins (all squares must have a pin in each corner)

A picture of the solution can be seen here if you need it

How do you determan the 1 to 12 angle marks on the square to find the right compound cuts cheers

The 1 to 12 marks are the rise of the roof pitch in 12 feet. 1 would be 1 foot rise in 12 feet, 2 would be a 2 foot rise in 12 feet and so on to the max of 12 foot rise in 12 feet.

How do you adjust the saws angle cut? When it is sett at 0 degress it is not making a square cut.

take a framing square sit it on base plate and adjust till its square and level with that angle.works same with table saws also hope that helps ya

I bought a protractor to measure the angle fo my stairs for baseboard. Now that I know thw angle how do I apply this to make the right angle cut?

Use a framing square with a set of angle gages (or stops) on it. The protractor can be used but it will take a lot of flipping and changing. The normal settings are 8" rise and 10" tread.

Not sure how to find actual length of hip rafters from plumb cut at ridge to birdsmouth at wallplate.I have 2 stanley quick squares but have misplaced the little instruction books.I would appreciate your...

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.
