How do pilots know when to start their descent into a city?

Typically I will take the number of thousands of feet to lose and divide by three. The result will be the number of miles out that I should begin the descent.

For example:

I have 33,000 feet to lose. 33/3= 11. I need to start my descent about 110 miles out.
