 Question 579455: I'm a toymaker. I'm building a toy castle.The watchtower is an octagon. The roof of the tower is made of 8 triangular pieces. The slope of the roof should be 45°. I'm trying to calculate the corners on wich to cut each part of the roof so they fit perfectly. I came up with the following formula but have no way to check it:(((180-(360/Z))/90)*H)/2 In this formula Z refers to the number of sides and H to the slope of the roof, calculated from a vertical view. English is not my native language, so I hope you can understand wat I want. Click here to see answer by KMST(1868)
