measuring angles
 
I'm trying to lay the last few rows. The room comes to a diagonal near the door.

I was trying to find a video showing how to measure, mark and cut.

Thanks

Bevel guage. You can pick one up at hardware or lumber stores. Cost under $10.00.

just measure the long to square and the short to square the angle doesn't matter

As you allready have much of the flooring down, butt a piece of flooring up to the wall parallel to the installed flooring. Take another piece of flooring or wider board and place it against the angled wall. Scribe that angle onto the flooring and then set you miter saw to the scribed line.
You can do the same thing with a bevel gage and add it to your tool collection.
