Give them an easy example like 3+2=5, and explain them what happens if you move numbers around and see if they have understand the concept of how to move numbers and variables around the equal sign. Then tell them to move the variable to move it on one side of an equal sign and then all the constants on the other side..once they do that ask them to simplify and that will be the solution for that variable
