I never paid attention in geometry.

I am doing trim. I have a wall that goes

Straight 45 straight. How do I figure out the angle to cut my trim.

A squared + B squared = C squared.

 

Triangle 6" base and 6" leg... What is the length of the diagnal?

 

6 X 6 = 36 + 6 X 6 = 36

 

36 + 36 = 72

 

Square root of 72 is 8.485 "   The diagnal is 8.485" this example.

I am not good at angles

Well, I wasn't that good in school, but have messed with a lot of math/geometry business over the past 45 years, and I just remembered (some) if it!!

Rip a stud at a 45 and fill that center gap on both sides if you're sheet rocking it. They make corner bead at that angle for mudding, if you need it.

I wouldn't trust that the wall is actually true. Get something like this and find each angle. Don't tryst that the other carpenter could do math either./

Neither was, or am I. I usually have to cut three times and it's still to short !    Glad these guys got you the help.                                        Roger.

Angles on walls in homes are rarely as precise as the angle on your miter box. Have you ever used a coping saw. This couple of minutes might very well be worth your time.  https://www.youtube....h?v=W8ccy0wLErQ This allows for all of those inside corners that invariably wont match your miter saw.
