Your small telescope will never get beyond about 100 power --- the maximum resolution is calculated as 50 times aperture under perfect conditions!
Use the eyepieces with the LARGEST numbers only and don't use the barlow.

There are only two types of telescopes --- REFRACTORS, and REFLECTORS-
The refractor has a lens on the front of the tube and you insert different eyepieces in the back-- the larger the number written on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification-- (DO NOT USE THE 2x or 3x barlow which you may have!-- this creates too much power for this small telescope!-- put it away and never use it!)
A reflector has a main mirror on the bottom of the tube, and a small secondary mirror under the eyepiece hole (focuser end) - front end-- put the lowest power eyepiece into the focuser.
Now with either type telescope go out side during the day and practice focusing on a distant object-- turn the knob SLOWLY. At night the moon should be the first target you try.
If you received what appears to be a smaller telescope -- that is the finder scope-- attach it to the top of the tube on the main telescope. Again during the day line up the small finder scope with the main scope-- look at a distant telephone pole (the very top-- and center this in the main telescope. Without moving the main scope use the finder scopes "screws" to adjust the cross hairs so they are pointing exactly where the main scope is pointed. Now you can use the small finder scope to point the telescope in the exact direction--
The moon should be your first night time target.

This is a simple alt ax refractor telescope. Most of them go together the same way.
Here is a similar manual for a Meade refractor. Use it to put your scope back together,
