How do you know if an oxide is basic, acidic, or amphoteric?

When the oxide is added to water and it forms an acid, then it is an acidic oxide. When an oxide is added to water and forms a base, then it is a basic oxide. And when an oxide is added to water and has the ability to form both an acid and base, then it is amphoteric.
