# How many tons are there in 7200 pounds?

There are 2000 pounds in one ton. Therefore, 7200 pounds is equal to 7200/2000 = 3.6 tons.

### How many pounds are the same as 3 tons?

7200 pounds. The above answer is incorrect. Short answer 6,000 lbs as most everyone considers a ton as a short ton. But: 1 long (or gross) ton = 2240 pounds x 3 tons = 6,720 lbs. 1 short (or net) ton = 2000 pounds x 3 tons = 6,000 lbs. 1 tonne (i.e., a metric ton) = 2204.6 pounds x 3 metric tons = 6,721.8 lbs
