I was given an I-pad that was previously set up for someone else. How can I wipe everything, start fresh, and register as the new owner?

Which version of iOS is it running? If it is running iOS 8 (and I think 7 as well if memory serves), you might need to deal with Activation Lock before you can wipe it (if the person had Activation Lock active).

If it does not have Activation Lock, then it is just a matter of wiping it.

To wipe it, go to the Setting app. Select the "General" and scroll all the way to the bottom where you will see the "Reset" button. It should be self explanatory from there.
