newbie question on rear axel

I was given a bike and had to replace the rear wheel tube, but now when I put it back on and tighten everything up. As soon as i pedal the chain will spin once and then pop off the rear gear. Don't really know whats wrong I've never worked on a bike before.

The chain is either too long or just isn't tight enough. How old are you?

No, you just aren't familiar with bikes. You'll pick it up quickly. It's super easy to fix a lot of things on a BMX bike.

It wasn't that... it was your terminology, spelling, and grammar.

meaning I don't sound like a teenager, or that I'm not educated in bike lingo

Is the chain tight when you put it on? If so, it'll be that your sprocket (front, larger cog) is bent
