You have that already in your String:

irb(main):001:0> message = "5x-2=18"
=> "5x-2=18"
irb(main):002:0> message[0].chr
=> "5"
irb(main):003:0> message[1].chr
=> "x"
irb(main):004:0> message[2].chr
=> "-"

I am suspecting though that what you really want is a parser for
expressions.  A simplistic version could look like this:

irb(main):005:0> message.scan %r{\d+|\w+|[-+=]}
=> ["5", "x", "-", "2", "=", "18"]

If you want to properly process expressions with brackets etc. you
need a more complex solution.

Kind regards
