I have 400 tons of scrap metal. If I sold the scrap at $4 per pound, how much would I have made?

How can I also go about solving this? Please and most certainly--thank you!

    An American ton or a metric ton??  400 x 2,000 x $4 = ____ (before prep work, transportation cost, taxes, etc)

    1 ton = 2,000 pounds

    400 tons = 400 x 2000 = 800000

    so you would make $4 x 800000 =  ???
