Question Dovetail jig?????

I just got a dovetail jig and tried to understand the's all Greek to me. It's just the common 16" one. Made by General and King and Semona etc. The math involved is a little puzzling. Is there an easier way to work the measuremnts out? Sure could use some help on this one.

Scott, no amount of written explanation will work near as well as watching somebody do a set up. Perhaps where you bought your jig can demo it for you? If not then maybe you can post a note there and find somebody who can show you? I have the Rockler jig which is about the same and I ended up making them show me in the store.
