Hello Student,
This solution below should get you started. I am supposing that you have already come across with the important points in relation to what scientific problem solving is about. If you haven't yet, the simplest way to do is visit this website as it explains things quite clearly:

When we say scientific thinking, we just mean follow the procedure that scientists used when they try to solve a problem. It is applicable to any problem from the simplest to the most complex. If you have any questions, let me know via the feedback section and I'll try to clarify things for you. Good luck!
