What is a scale? A scale is a group of 7 notes that sound good together. To Find the notes you must look at the interval pattern..

Inorder to form a scale pick a scale you want to learn. I'll pick the C Major Scale for example purposes. Now all you do is start with C and follow the interval pattern. Example: C whole step to D another whole step to E half step to F (Note: there are no sharps or flats between E and F -- the same applies between B and C) then we take a whole step to G then another whole step to A then another whole step to B and finally a half step to C (the octave note). So we get these notes:
C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C

Inorder to figure where the sharps and the flats go, in the flat side, you flat every 4th note and carry it down to the scales after it and repeat the pattern. On the sharp side, you sharp every 7th note and carry it down to the scale after it and repeat the pattern. For example, look at the scales below.

Here are all the trumpet scales:
