Question Transition around tiled fireplace surround

Just installed some Pergo American Cottage and most of the transitions are going well. The problem area is around the tile fireplace surround. It is the same height as the floor and has 5 sides. It has 2 fifteen inch depth sides, 2 angled-in 11 inch sides and a front 48 inch wide. Using all my math skills, I can't find the right angle for the T-molding to meet up without raw edges showing. Does anyone out there have a formula I can use or a recommendation for a different type of molding?

This is where a couple of scrap pieces work great to mark funky angles.

Usually it is a 22.5 on the angles, when you have that layout shape for a hearth.

Take two scraps with a 22.5 opposite cut on each and place them on the angle as they sit tight. then measure back to the wall, to the long point on the angle cut.

Do this for all pieces, and one measure one cut, and a perfect fit.
