Figuring brick mold angles

I have a single garage door that has that 45 degree angle and I have to replace the brick mold. Not sure if I can use the old brick mold angle. Is there a method for figuring out such angles? Thanks.

Brick Moulding

Your post is not completely clear. Do you mean that the upper corners have two 45 degree angles? If so, cut the brick moulding at 22.5 degrees.

Replacing with PVC brick molding I hope.
The easiest way to remove the old is to drive in the nails with a small nail set as far as you can then remove it with a flat bar.

We still don't know if the existing angle is ninety degrees, in which case each cut is forty five degrees or if the existing s forty five in which case the cuts ar twenty two.five

Brick Mold

Oh yea. Won't use anything but PVC. Thank you very much for answering my question. Not sure if the existing is good enough to use as a template.
