How do you figure the angle of a right triangle when you only have the
height and width?

Thanks for your time.

Hello!

Our archivist just told me of a wonderful new resource that we have made
available.  It's a kind of "math for the construction trade."

The specific page that would be useful for this question is
http://mathforum.org/~sarah/hamilton/ham.2sides.known.html   

The index page is at http://mathforum.org/~sarah/hamilton/   .

Enjoy!
