Mileage calculation help required

Flying from AMS-DOH in Business Promo (R) the calculator shows 3,823 miles without status and 6,117 as a Gold member (I think this consists of 3,823 plus 75% of 3,058 which is the Economy Flexi rate that appears to be used as the base figure?).

I flew this recently as a Gold member with a treble miles promotion in place and was awarded 15,762 miles. I understand it may not be 3x the Gold mileage earnings as tier bonuses don't count in the 3x calculation as indicated in the Ts and Cs, but I can't see any way of doing the arithmetic to come up with the actual number of miles awarded.

Can anyone else work it out and explain it to me?

First online booking? Looks like you were awarded the 2000 bonus for first online booking - so (3*3823) + 2294 + 2000 = 15,763.

That must be it and it hadn't even occured to me during the numerous permutations I'd been trying. Thanks.
