"[Computational Thinking] is essential to the development of computer applications, but it can also be used to support problem solving across all disciplines, including math, science, and the humanities. Students who learn CT across the curriculum can begin to see a relationship between subjects as well as between school and life outside of the classroom."
1) Consider the steps required to solve the problem.
2) Possibly use a computer to solve the problem.

To solve the problem:
