Question about DHCP

Hello guys, im trying to figure out a problem in my mind, but i am not finding the answer...

When a computer first connects to a network, he sends out a message to the broadcast adress, looking for a DHCP server to give him an ip adress right?
My question is, if the computer doesen't have an ip adress, how can it know the broadcast adress for that network?
How does it know , that the broadcast adress is and is not or for example...?

I just started to read compTIA Network+ book, i never ever had contact with networking before i start reading this book.
I am a person that can only understand something when it makes logical sense, so i really like to go to the bottom of every subject to understand how it really works.
Thank you in advance.
