On a COMMERCIAL flight, your dispatcher will have all that calculated for you.

If you needed to you'd be told how to.

Fuel calculator program in laptop, tablet, or the aircraft's computerized flight management system.

That’s easy! You just need to know the distance to Your destination the course you need to follow, the velocity of the wind at the altitude you intend to fly, and the rate you burn fuel. Just apply the law of cosines to achieve your ground speed and heading. Then do a little 6th grade arithmetic. see how simple that was?
