7. 12 Studs in a framed wall are placed 16" inches apart. A sloped wall presents a challenge in that the distance (L) between studs along the top plate is longer. If the top plate has a slope of 4/12, calculate distance L so that the stud layout can be marked on the top plate. Round your answer to the nearest 16th of an inch. Hint: First use the slope to calculate the rise for a 16" run. 4 16"
