You have to check the overall charge of the compound in order to find the oxidation number of the elements. For example for MnO4-, we know that the charge of oxygen is 2- so with four oxygens this makes up a charge of 8-. The overall charge of the compound is 1- so that means the charge of Mn must be 7+.
