fit in each bin. If I want to put an odd number of kennels in and I cant draw
a straight line across to make all of the wedges the same size... how do I figure out the
angles...degrees ? maybe i'm making it too hard but i'd like to give the dogs as much space
as i can. I did up some ... attached. Answered by Harley Weston.
