10 Tons

2000 pounds = 1 ton therefore 4,000 = 2 tons2

2 tons

There are many tons out there some in use and some just historical. The ones commonly considered are long tons, short tons and metric tons (tonnes): * A long ton is 2240 lb. * A short ton is 2000 ib. * A metric ton (tonne) is 2205 lb. So the answer is 4480 lb., 4000 lb., or 2210 lb.

Probably simplest (easiest not to get mixed up) to convert both to lb, subtract, then convert back to tons. 1 ton = 2000 lb, so: 6t 300 lb = 6x2000 lb + 300 lb = 12000 lb + 300 lb = 12300 lb 2t 900 lb = 2x2000 lb + 900 lb = 4000 lb + 900 lb = 4900 lb 12300 lb - 4900 lb = 7400 lb convert back to tons: 7400 lb/ 2000 lb per ton = 3 tons 1400 lb
