    Thanks for having this information available and easy to understand. I am remodeling a large house that has numerous arches outside. Now it will have professional looking arches.
    Best regards,

    Thank you for this! I knew there was a way to do it, but couldn’t remember exactly. Nice that there is actual math so that you can be accurate :)

    Thanks for taking the time to post this!
