Remember that algebra/geometry class we said we would never use in real life. LOL oh well. The way i do it is to measure the height and distance to cover to the landing of the stairs then you divide run by the number of steps you want and so you come up with a even number. You then take that number and and divide the rise should give you the run. It needs to be a comfortable step as well or you get to start over. I am not a professional but I usually get a rise/run of 7-8 inches/ 10-11 inches. If anyone else has anything to add feel free.
