Hold on a doggoned minute.

If one rips a board on a 40 degree ( iPad doesn’t have an alt key) bevel, the cutoff piece will be at 40 degrees as well. The heel of the cut will be at 50 degrees.

In order to achieve a 50 degree bevel, one would need to set the saw back to 90 and recut at the short point of the bevel created previously at 40 degrees.

Perhaps a jig is in order here. That is a pretty squirrelly cut to make, let alone the potential danger if attempting to utilize the fence as a guide for the long point of the bevel.
