Step 1

Given that Studs framed in a wall are 16'' apart.

Length of the sloped wall along the  top plate = L.

Slope of top plate = 4/12.

So here below a triangle ABC is formed where AB is distance between studs = 16 inch and AC is L distance along top plate. Let us assume x be the side BC.

Step 2

Given slope of top plate is 4/12.

According to the traingle formed Slope = opposite side/adjacent side = x...
