How can you know if an oxide will be acidic, basic, or amphoteric?

Usually if it is binding with a metal it is basic, and if its binding with a non metal its acidic but you usually need to find out experimentally but generally the first two groups are basic.

It would be basic if you have metal element in the formula; it would be acid if you have nonmetal element in the formula; it would be amphoteric if you have metalloid in the formula
