    Answer: Half of a ton equals to 1,120 pounds.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Hi, to answer this question we have to analyze the information given:

    Since 80 stones make up half of a long ton, and each stone weight is 14 pounds, to obtain the number of pounds in half of a long ton we simply have to multiply the number of stones (80) by the weight of each stone (14)

    Mathematically speaking:

    14 x 80 = 1,120 pounds

    Half of a ton equals to 1,120 pounds.
