    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

    Not sure where the 998,000,000 pounds is coming from.

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

    Screenshot of query:

    Source(s): http://www.nass.usda.gov/ 1) Click on "Crops and Plants" on left side of page. 2) Click on "Fruits" in middle of page. 3a) Select "Pumpkins" from the list. 3b) Click [Search]. 4a) Under "State and County Statistics", for "From:" select "2004". 4b) For "To:" select "2004". 4c) For "Select a State below" select "All States, United States". 4d) Click [Get Data]. It shows each of the states production totals. For example, California's production total is 1,404 thousand hundredweight, or 140,400,000,000 pounds. 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 hundredweigh, or 1,021,900,000 pounds).
