This book contains math formulas for just about everything you can think of that relates to home building, engineering, home improvements, or hobby and workshop projects. There is information on how to use a square to mark lengths of rafters, cut birds mouth notches, or measure and cut hip, ridge, and valley rafters. The reader is provided with various formulas and shown how to figure the area and volume of different geometric shapes. Calculations and methods to solve many common mathematical questions are explained. How many yards of concrete should I order for this patio, what length of 2 x 12 do we need for the roof rafters, or how much water will it take to fill our pool? Carpentry, mechanical, civil and structural engineering, electrical, painting, plumbing, and many more everyday calculations for many aspects of building are all contained in this very informative math reference book.
