Here is how I cam up with the answer for your math problem. First you take the .60 and multiply it by 20. Which is 12. Now he gets the 5 dollar bonus which brings it to 17. Now I multiplied the 17 by 2. Which is 34 dollars and 40 cans. So now I go back and see that 20 cans gets me 17 dollars so I add 20 more cans for a total of 51 dollars. Now all I did after that was multiple .6 by a number till I figured out that 4 x .6 was 2.40

So you need 64 cans to make \$53.40
