    Try setting your angle at 15degrees and your bevel at 45.

        Why didn't you post this a while ago, when I needed it?

          One method. There should be others.

          Get a piece from the container and set your saw to it's angles. ( quick & easy )

          The tapers can be made with two tapered cuts using a jig or by one tapered cut and the splay angle which may have two angles for one cut if the top and/or bottom edge are not at 90 deg. to the face.

          Draw a a picture & remember a circle = 360* and a right angle = 90* and the number of side's will determine the individual angles.
