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.

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 hundredweight, or 1,021,900,000 pounds).
