Pitch is a bitumen or it can mean the slope of the roof for example 1/8" per foot fall

You have answered the question for yourself.!!!! The area is '625 sq.'

25.8 feet

Your roof is a square based pyramid.

A 4/12 gives you 4" per foot.

what is the cost of a roof per square foot

it's easier than that. . . take a four foot level up to the roof and measure the distance from the bottom of the level to the roof and divide by 4. . .that is the pitch

It really depends on the style, height, and pitch of the roof. A traditional shingled gable roof with a relatively low pitch may cost about $2-5 per square foot (yes there are 3 bundles in a square, so a 3000 square foot surface area roof will take approximately 30 squares, or 90 bundles). For a recent job I did in the DFW area, the homeowner's insurance paid about $2 per square foot (or $50 per square)... low pitch & simple roof-lines. If the roof is steep (which should be less common in Texas since it does not snow often, but I think homeowners find the steep pitch visually appealing), has more hips, ridges, valleys, is on a 2-story house etc., it can cost considerably more. Hope that helps

Pitch is a bitumen or it can mean the slope of the roof for example 1/8" per foot fall

That is the Pitch or slope of the roof. It means that in one foot of horizontal measure you will have 5" of rise .

Roof pitch is rise and run. So if you have a 4/12 pitch, for every foot of run the roof rises 4 inches.

depends on pitch of roof,and height of roof ,

a 100 foot run with a 50 foot rise would give you a 6/12 pitch

In general, talking about roof pitch, I have never heard or read about this term being used. Roof pitch is measured when you start at the leading edge of a roof and measure towards the center of the house too 12 feet. Pitch is measured from a imaginary parallel level line at the 12 foot mark, how many feet high the roof is at 12 feet is the pitch of a roof. If your roof is at 4 feet high at the 12 foot mark then the phrase would be- a 4/12 pitch.
