roof molding

the front of my porch roof is shaped like a triangle . I want to trim it with molding. Is there a way to figure out the mitre cuts so I don't have to climd up & down the scaffolding a zillion times?

And then calculate the angle to divide it in half. You can place the T bevel on your chop saw to find the angle
