laying out a wall at 75 degrees


Can anyone tell me if there is a formula for laying out a wall at 75 degrees? If I start with a 90 degree wall what would be the measurement off of the 90 degree line to get a 75 degree angle? In other words if I travel up 12 inches from a set point how many inches horizontally would I need to get the angle? I'm thinking its around 3" or so but wanted to check. Thanks

Draw a square line from the base at 12" a 75* line would be 3-3/16"

By the way welcome to the best DIY'r site on the web
