    If this is for FastWeb, their "correct" answer is 998 million. However, their answer is WRONG.

    The total number of pounds for those states is 1,021,900,000 pounds.

    Illinois 457,200,000 pounds

    Califonia 140,400,000 pounds

    Ohio 111,600,000 pounds

    Michigan 100,800,000 pounds

    Pennsylvania 130,000,000 pounds

    New York 81,900,000 pounds

    Total 1,021,900,000 pounds

    The United States Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service shows a total of 1,021,900,000 pounds for those six states.

You can sum up these states to arrive at 1,021,900,000 pounds, but the result of the query also shows the total (10,219 thousand hundredweight, or 1,021,900,000 pounds).
