Jack, You are right it is a real world problem. Good crafts people of all kinds need a solid base in geometry and trig and always have. One of the problems is that most crafts people are not college bound and therefore do not usually get algebra, geometry, or trigonometry. Some of the older trade books used to have the function tables by logarithms. Johnny
