    Hey, this sounds like a homework question:-)...

    Depending on where you are located when you recycle. I know of a place here in Ct where they will do it for you,but you only get 4 cents per can instead of the standard 5 cents for CT, NY, etc. look on the can to see if they will accept it for recycling. If they don't, for instance, any iced tea or lemonade can will not have a deposit on it, however, it can and should still be recycled.

    Anyway, mathematically, if you have 100 cans and they are 5 cents each, you multiply 100 X .05 which equals $5.00.
