I think its just depends on what is given and known.

Yeah, it really just depends on what information the problem gives you.

usually look for the unknown the question is asking for and list out the values they give you to know which equation to use.

The equations depends on what is given, but all the formulas are given on the front sheet and those that aren't given you can derive

There are three equations that are given connecting Ecell, K and DeltaG if you're given one you can find the others.
