Are you talking about an arch at the top of a door way?
I have to ask because there's just no way to do it.
It's not made to bend and will just snap in half.
It also has to have room to expand and contract, can not be face nailed.

Find center of the door, take a string that is as long as you want the entry to be deep, then lay down a piece of cardboard larger than the opening, and deeper than how far you are going to lay the floor.

Use a pencil at the end of the string, and draw the arch. When done, you have a template to lay on top of the flooring, to be able to cut the pieces for the arch.

Keep in mind that the arch will only be as deep as the doorway is wide, unless you plan on going just past where the trim pieces are, then it will be as long as that area is wide.

It will be better if you add a pic of your door, to make clear on your doubt.

Not needed, due to the way I described works for anytime you need to form a arch. Not that hard to do, if you follow directions and take time to do it right.
