TI-84 Plus CE and HP Prime: Pitch versus Angle

TI-84 Plus CE and HP Prime:  Pitch versus Angle

The program PITCH calculates the pitch and angle of various roof heights.  The pitch of a roof is the number of inches of vertical rise per 12 inches.  For example: a roof of 3/12 is pitch is a roof that rises 3 inches for every 12 horizontal inches.

This program demonstrates the angle computer given different roof pitches.  You control the rise, anywhere for 0.5 ft to 12 ft.   Use the up and down arrow keys to control the rise.

To exit the program:

TI-84 Plus CE:  Press [CLEAR].
HP Prime:  Press [Esc].
