    English ton is 2,240 pounds. Work it out people, there are 16 ounces in a pound , 28pounds in a quarter, 112 pounds in a hundred weight and 20 hundred weight in a ton = 2,240 lbs.
    The above answer for metric is also incorrect.
    There is no such thing as a metric ton, it is a tonne pronounced as tom with a "n". There are 2000kilograms to a tonne, not that that has anything to do with the original question.
    2000 in an English ton, 2200 in a metric tun I think
    2000 in the U.S.
