charge and oxidation state

How do you find the charge of a ligand and also the oxidation state?

The charges of ligands are found in tables from which you have to memorize. To find the oxidation state of the transition metal, you set up an equation (x+ (#of ligand multiplied by the charge of it)= the charge of the compound as a whole), and then you solve for x.
