Both can give you the same thing, you just need to look at what you're given and determine which formula has it ex. if you're given delta H, T, and delta S, then you'll want to use delta G = delta H - T delta S
It is also important to note that you might get slightly different answers when using the two different methods due to rounding differences since you are using a table of information for one and information given in the problem for the other.
Don’t forget that there is also this equation: ∆G = ∆G° + RTlnQ A lot of homework questions about Gibbs free energy can only be answered with this. It’s generally used when given a temperature value, a K value, and concentations/partial pressures of reactants and products to calculate Q.
