    Look at how the rate of reaction changes over time. If it's constant, it's zero, if it's linear it's first, if it's quadratic it's second

    You have to solve using for instance, if we used a simple one reaction A + B -> Product yoU sould have: rate = k[A][B] and the reaction would be first order in A, first order in B and second order overall. The rate constant can then be determined from initial rate information easily when given.
