Need more info but I am assuming you are flooring up to an angled wall or threshold. Easiest way is to lay your plank parallel to the rest of the flooring and butting up against the wall. Take a straight, wide piece of wood and place it along the wall or threshold. When you cut that scrap piece you will have created a template for cutting the rest.

Pick up a Bevil square at the local HD for a couple of bucks.
