basic equation trouble

My trouble is I can't remember the order to alter equations. If a=(Vf-Vi)/t how do I get it to be Vf instead of a? Other, more complicated examples like d=((Vxf -Vxi)/t) + (1/2)a(t^2) changed to = 'Vxf=equation' would be more beneficial for me, but the basic order of things works just as well...this is a refresher and I can't recall the term for this action, so I haven't been able to find any resources on it.

You may find the topic"change of subject"
Multiply t on both sides
Add Vi on both sides

For more complicated examples, simply put things other than the term you want to other side.
Good results were achieved and the new task is to become a good doctor.
