How does one find the formula name of a hydrated ionic compound when the ionic compound is unknown?

I know how to find the ratio between the ionic compound and water, I just can'

t identify what ionic compound it is. The only thing I know about the compound is that its molar mass is 180.0 g/mol, it's a salt, and after it has been heated to a constant weight, the remaining anhydrous salt has a mass of 1.333g (2.000 gram sample of hydrated ionic compound to begin with).
