I suggest that you go to the store and get a new framing square that includes "the Little Blue Book"

Also buy a pair of stair gauges--(little brass clamps for the square.)

The little blue book has very simple instructions for figuring run and rise--step thickness--the whole thing.

Also your library will have several books on the subject.---Mike----

Do as Mike said and you will also have to follow code in your area for rise and run.
