I know little about carpentry, but I would like to know the easiest way to determine the cut for the angle on the red pieces you see here. I am considering making a tent deck with roof, and I see this on many structures, as a support. Also, what is it called, and what tool to determine angle? I know there is a small aluminum triangle contractors carry, but not sure if that is useful, or how to use it.

Thank you.

thank you

Thank you. I am just concerned about the length. I mean, a 45 degree angle is fine, but how does one determine the second cut, for the height of the angle brace? Thank you kindly.
