How do I measure and cut stair stringers for a run of 118 1/2 and drop of 56 1/2

I need to replace the steps from my back porch to my carport. And I need to know how to measure and cut the stringers from the beginning. I've had someone try to show me but all he did was start measuring and cutting and didn't explain the procedure so I could understand why he did what hedid.

Cutting stringers is one of those things that looks a lot easier than it actually is.  While I could describe the process to you but you might be better served by watching several of the many videos on YouTube.  


Home Depot also sells pre-cut stringers for decking that may meet your needs.

Thanks for your input. I've tried that before, guess I'll have to give it another shot.
