lean to, 38 foot wide, starting at 16 foot high,what would be the height at the other end at say 10,or 8 degree slope?

10 degree slope is roughly 1:6 give or take a bit so youll end up wi around 13-14' there or thereabouts (providing my brains in gear at this time of night lol)
you can go down to 5 degrees with metal sheeting using ordinary fixings any less and hidden fixings are recomended
The ratio of height loss to horizontal length is the tangent, but where to find tangents instantly?
Easy!
If you go to the Windows start menu and start to type "Calculator" in the "Search programs and files" box, it'll bring up the windows calculator link, which you click to open. That will be a simple arithmetic calculator, but if you then click the "view" tab, it gives you the option of "scientific" which when clicked brings up a fairly standard scientific calculator, with tangents, sines, cosines, logs etc. etc.
I'm sure few of us want to know that Tan 10 degrees is 0.17632698070846497347109038686862, but multiply that by 38 feet and we have 6.7004252669216689919014347010075 feet of height loss, or about 6' 8" between friends.
.... as said above.
Awtch, a 40 foot roof at 10 degrees is going to hold a lot of snow is it not?
