How would you know the charge for a transition metal in the d-block?

In what case do you mean? In any salt, metal + nonmetal, it's usually easier to go off the charge of the nonmetal.

a lot of them have different charges so usually, they will specify in the problem

like iron has a +2 +3 and +4 charge it just depends on the reaction

Transition metals in the d-block can exist in a wide variety of oxidation states due to their electron configurations. Problems will specify what charge that cation has.
