As I hiker I sometimes want to calculate the difficulty of a climb. I know how to use rise over run to get the percent of an incline. How do I convert that percent to degrees WITHOUT a scientific calculator? For example, yesterday I went up a trail with a 38 percent incline (1000 ft. gain over 1/2 mile).

It depends if you're a brilliant person which can easily give the answer directly
