If you're serious about "no background," I'd suggest by enrolling them
in a good preschool.  Everyone else will have a background: they might
be lawyers, doctors, teachers, carpenters, or what-have-you.  You can
assume basic fluency in English and a certain amount of formal
education.  They might be at a sixth-grade level in math or they might
all have graduate degrees, but there will be *some* background.

Find out what the common background is.  Then try asking your question
again.  Because, honestly, believing that people have *no* background is
a gross disrespect to them.  Learn their capabilities, and structure
your materials appropriately.
