    You obviously have never built a house.

    No but I know people who have. Maybe an architect designing a skyscraper has to use higher math to calculate stress loads per cubic feet in high wind conditions and stuff like that but not a guy with a crew of framers, roofers and the like using saws and nail guns and stuff like that.

    You have no idea what you are talking about. Come spend a week with me. You would be surprised how often it is used.

    Yes .... figuring the roof line on a house and cutting the ridge and rafters involves a little more than 2+2.

    That's just one example...

    Just last week, we were removing a load bearing wall. It takes a little smarts to figure the beam size to support the load that the wall once held.

    So you are saying you do this [​IMG] instead of just saying cut those 2 by 4's into 8'4 7/16th lengths?

    Dude, quit being obtuse. Bottom line, we use Algebra, trig, geometry, etc. My father is a retired architect. His degree was not a BS in Architecture, but rather Architectural Engineering. There are so many times that I have to calculate loads, lengths, angles, etc. You have obviously never done any of this and now you are just being argumentative.
