When do you use "said" and "told"?
The main meaning of the verb tell is to "speak or write something to someone."
The main meaning of say is to "use your voice to express something in words."
Say or Tell?
•You say something
•You tell someone something
Difference "Said" Vs "Told"?
Told / Tell indicate that a person deliberately communicated with someone else.
"He TOLD me to be quiet" or "He TOLD me about the accident".
Said / Say refers to words coming from someone's mouth. It doesn't matter whether anyone is listening.
Already visited the below threads
please explain very simple and clear if possible.
Find / Figure out

So my understanding is
Stage 1 : To find the problem (I guess, here I can use “FIND”)
Stage 2: Analyze the root cause of the problem (I guess, here I can use “FIGURE OUT”)
Stage 3: Based on the analysis, we implement our solution to the problem and fix it.
