You said the answer, you scribe the measurements to the tile going in the space. Apparently you know the term, but not how to do it. Any luck yet?

Oh...........diagonal.

Same way. Use a tile to measure distance and mark. Then use a speed square to extend and mark the 45 degree angles. A little practice and you'll get it.
