    "Back titration" of what? Acid-base pairs? Redox couples? You will have to be a bit more specific.

    Technically all back titrations are identical - you titrate an excess of the added substance. List what is being determined, what is being added in excess, what is the titrant, write all reaction equations - and then it is just a stoichiometry to follow.

    It's like you do not have exact change when you take items you want to buy to the cashier. You overpay with larger value pieces and the cashier give you the extra change in smaller-value pieces. This means you net paid what the purchase cost was.
