Alright...

I am going into a State Competition with a chance to get my college completely funded.. So I was wondering if anyone could tell me a good place to find the bending math..like how many inches to add to make the bend, what to add onto the measurement for an offset...etc. Like I know that on a 90 degree bend 5 inches is in there...but do u take it off the measurement or take it off?

All help would be greatly appreciated.
