Exercise of phrasal verbs. “To figure something out”; this means to understand or to find the answer to something.

First example

“I need to figure out how to fit the piano and the sofa in this room”

So in this example it means I need to work out I need to decide, I need to try to understand how to fit the piano and the sofa in this room. If you can see the verb is together so the subject is after the verb

So in this example you have got the subject in which we dedede the two parts of the phrasal verb. So what the person is trying to say is they finally understood they finally worked out they finally solve how to download the app.

And the last one.

“Hold on one second…I need to figure out how to get to the hotel from the train station”

In this example the person is trying to understand how to get to the hotel from the train station, so this means to solve, to work out.
