On average, earth's crust contains about 8.1% aluminum by mass. If a standard 12-ounce soft drink can contains approximately 15.0g of aluminum, how many cans could be made from one ton of the Earth's crust?

    1 ton = 2,000 pounds.
    2,000 pounds = about 907,185 grams. You can go through the conversion. Repost if you need some help with that.
    g Al = 907185*0.081 = ??
    15.0 g/can x #cans = 907185*0.081
    Solve for #cans.
