Basics of SolidWorks configurations and derivatives?

Hey guys. I was designing a simple part.

This part has an angle cut in it. The angle, in degrees, can vary in addition to the length of the triangle.

How do I create several configurations with varied length and then create a derivative of those with a different angle? Is that possible?

Make your simple part. Include dimensions for the angles you want to control.
Select Insert, Tables, Design Table
Use auto create
Add all of the dimensions to the table.
Edit the table.
Add your new configuration. You can use formulas etc to calculate dimensions.
Here is a simple part with design table.
edit the table and in the cells
