D. The square as we know it was invented by the Greeks?
Are we talking about the same thing? When drawing a plumb cut on a hip rafter (the ones in the corner at 45 degrees), for the top or the bird’s mouth, the square is set with number 17 on the body, and the slope number on the tongue. 12 is used instead of 17 for the hip jacks and common rafters.
The only time I recall using the number 13 for a hip roof is when the slope was 13.
