    Depends on what information you have already and what you're looking for, and most importantly, practice.

    tbh you can always start out with the Sine Rule... if it doesn't work switch to the Cosine Rule.

    The cosine rule is if you have 2 sides and the angle between them, and you're looking for the opposite side (or some rearranged version of that formula).

    The sine rule is when you're looking at 2 or 3 sides and the angles opposite them. If more than one angle is known, I'd probably think of the sine rule first, it depends on what you already know.
