#### 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
