    It's very simple ^^

    Ce is masculine and is used for masculine nouns beginning with consonants e.g. ce piano

    Cet is also for masculine and is used for masculine nouns beginning with a vowel or sometimes a silent 'h' e.g. cet ordinateur, or cet homme

    Cette is for feminine nouns in general e.g. cette table

    And then theres 'ces' which you haven't mentionned: it's just for plural

    Hope that's helped!
