ok, maybe this will help (hip roof framing)

I did some quick drawings that might help understand what my questions is.
I don't know the proper way to tie in the part that bumps out.
My guess is that it works like in the last drawing, my concern is the placement of the rafters so that it has the strength simular to the rest of the roof.
(you'll have to forgive my drawing, not all the lines are straight, but you should get the point)

Didn't Joe Carola answer this for you already?

The ridge for the bump-out is hung off the Hip on the Main.
