9-83.

One ton is equal to 2000 pounds. Convert each of the following weights to tons or to pounds.

1. $2$ tons

$2$ tons is twice as heavy as $1$ ton. If $1$ tons is the same as $2000$ pounds, how many pounds would be twice as heavy?

1. $10{,}000$ pounds

$\frac{10,000\text{ pounds}}{2000\text{ pounds in each ton}}$

1. $6$ tons

$12{,}000$ pounds

1. $1\frac { 1 } { 2 }$ tons

Half of one ton is half of $2{,}000$ pounds.

1. $7000$ pounds

$3\frac{1}{2}\text{ tons}$

1. $2200$ pounds

$\frac{2200 \text{ pounds}}{2000\text{ pounds}}$
