put the on the same denominatior.
So it's 26 4/12 and 10 3/12.
Substract 10 3/12 from 26 4/12 (4/12 - 3/12 = 1/12)
You'll have 16 1/12 now divide it by 2 (because it's the total measurement that's free on the door (sorry if it's not clear...)).
Note: 2 is in reality 2/1
When you divide a fraction, you multiplie by the inverse.
So you keep the 1/12 and you multiply it by the invers of 2/1...1/2
1/12 * 1/2 = 1/24
Now add the 16 divide by 2 and you'll have you have your answer.
I think I will have to play it at least 20 times just to work out what on Earth it is doing.
(and that is being conservative)
I'M NOT SURE WHAT IS SLOPE, BUT I THINK THAT IS CORRECT.
Use this function to find your angle!
atan(6/10) ****Why 6? Because 72in = 6foot.****
You'll have your answer...atan(6/10)
WHERE B is the opposite AND A is the adjacent.
The slope usually just means the gradient, so here that is 10/6 = 1.67 (approx)
This assumes that the phrase "distance between first and second floor" means vertical distance (b in samgelinas's picture.)
