How to calculate the height of a bookstand at 20 degrees.

Alex Campbell
Last Modified: 2017-04-23
I have two pieces of wood.
One is the base of a bookstand that will sit on a desk.
The other piece will be hinged with the other at their front and will support the book.
It is 11 1/4 inches from the hinge to the back of the board.
How high should the back of the board be for a 20 degree angle?
