      You need to write down what you are given in the question before you start. If you have specific heat capacity energy and temperature change for example and you are being asked to find the mass of the object,

      You write down the formula and get it in terms of the mass and then input the numbers. The majority of the time though itll be even simpler than that. If you struggle with manipulating the formula which I did for a while you should ask your teacher to show you step by step how to manipulate the formulae. I hope this was helpful. Remember its usually not much more than inputting numbers once the formula is in the terms you need them to be
