    Default Adding cards back into deck

    I should be able to figure this out, but I'm completely lost.

    The following code deals to a hand of choice a set number of cards (int toDeal):
    private void deal(Hand hand, int toDeal)
            for (int j = 0; j < toDeal; j++)
                Hand temp = hand.handCards();
                Card[] s = new Card[temp.getNumCards() + 1];
                Card[] q = hand.getHand(); 
                for (int k = 0; k < temp.getNumCards(); k++)
                    s[k] = q[k];
                s[s.length - 1] = deck.dealCard();

    to call it I run:
    deal(playerHand, 5);

    How do I make a method to add these cards back into the deck (the cards from the temp array)?

    Thank you,
    any ideas or code greatly appreciated
