draw a vertical line up the blue axis, to the desired height.
draw a horizontal line from the bottom of the vertical line, along either the green or red axis.
put another vertical line coming up from the horizontal line where you want the apex of the curve of the ramp to be, both in height and distance along the horizontal line.
select the curved line tool, click on the top of the vertial line and the end of the vertical line, then click on the top of the apex line.
you should now have a complete face.
extrude this face using the push/pull tool.
let me know how it goes.

To be honest, it's a really easy program to learn. Just play around with it for a while. After a few months I had mastered the program at age 13.
