# Question poised to me by contractor. What pitch is your roof My answer was that it rises at a 25 degree angle. What is the pitch in his terms?

If I remember right it should be between a 5 and 6 pitch. Between a 5/12 pitch and 6/12 pitch. If it was 27.5 degrees it would be a 6/12 pitch. Enter in "roof pitch" in the Google bar and several sites will come up where you can calculate pitch. The 12 means 12 inches. So that it would be aproximitely 6 inches rise to 12 inches of run. Hope this helps and I hope I remember my roof pitch angles. It has been a few years since I have done it.

### Why is a zero degree angle same as a180 degree angle?

A zero degree angle is not the same as a 180 degree angle -- no more than a 90 degree angle is the same as a 270 degree angle. It's not. An angle of zero is the same as an angle of 360 degrees. In fact, if you start with any angle, and add or subtract 360 degrees from it, you wind up with the same angle as the original one.

### What is a 299 degree angle called?

I'm not really sure what you mean by this question but... a 299 degree angle is called an obtuse angle. An angle that is less than 90 degrees is called an acute angle. And, an anglke that is more than 90 degress is calel dan obtuse angle. An angle that is more that 180 degrees, which is a straight line, is a reflex angle. Finally, an angle that is 90 degrees is called a right…

### What is the measure of the smallest angle formed?

Is a zero degree angle really an angle? If an angle is formed by two rays starting at the same point, then a zero degree angle really has only one ray; so it is a degenerate angle. Your question is almost like asking, "What is the smallest number greater than zero?" No matter what answer you give, I can give you a number smaller than your number.
