The rule is..
you have to write the tone on top of the vocal word that in order of…

a, o, e, i, u, ü

but except i and u ,its depend on which is the last…

ex:

in “jiu” the tone is write on top of u

in “shui” the tone is write on top of i

so depend on the order in xie xie the tone is write on top of the e

ok..
that’s what i know..
^^

and add other information to make it more clear…
please tell me if it’s wrong..
