How to calculate scope

When calculating anchor scope do you add in the distance from the anchor roller to the water? My roller is 9 feet above the water so I have been including it in my calculations. Last night we anchored in 11 feet plus 9 feet up to the roller for a total of 20 feet times three equals 60 feet of chain for a three to one scope. Is this correct? Or do I actually have over 5 to one out?
