Suppose the front of the house is 17 feet from the street and the peak is 32 feet from the street (measure just horizontally). How far is the run from the front edge to the peak?
What is the pitch of this roof?
Why do we care about the pitch of the roof? For what reasons could a steeper roof be better and for what reasons would a less steep roof be better?
