Answer

14,000 lb or 16,000 lb

Work Step by Step

An adult African elephant could weigh 7 to 8 tons. We have to find the weight of elephant in pounds As we know 2000 pounds (lb) = 1 ton We are converting from a larger unit to a smaller unit (a ton is larger than a pound), so multiply. 7 ton = 7 * 2000 lb = 14,000 lb And 8 ton = 8 * 2000 lb = 16,000 lb Elephant weigh 14,000 lb or 16,000 lb
