when picking a trial to plug into to solve for values does it matter which one we choose?

It doesnt really matter but you can make calculations a little bit easier by choosing trials with simpler numbers.

We can pick any trial and should end up with the correct result

It does not matter which trial is used, they will all give you the correct value.

You should end up with the same result, i guess we just always try to pick out the easiest choice

Sometimes some concentrations are easier to work with than others. For example, say trial 2 is just double trial 1 while the third trial is some random number. You would still get the same answer in the end, but it's faster and easier to pick trials that "get along" better.
