Cutting base around 3/4" corner bead

I've seen carpenters doing this with 2/4/6 small pieces of baseboard to make a transition around the corner. I'd be ok just using 1 or two pieces but I can't wrap my brain around how to figure the length of the pieces needed when doing this.

Post is a little vague. Are you trying to wrap a base molding around a 3/4" radius?

If you feel you must try to use math on this, here is the 'theoretical' dimension across the inside bottom for a 3/4 radius. But it never works out exactly right.

Most guys will slide both pieces till they get what looks good to them, and mark the floor. 5/8" to 3/4" usually comes out close. Sometimes you need 7/8".
