I am not good at these kinds of problems, so if anyone could show me how to do this, it would be great.

Currently, there are about 270 million people in the U.S. The EPA set a goal of 35% of solid waste recylced by the year 2009. The estimate is that by then, the average person in the U.S. will generate about 4.3 pounds of solid waste daily. If that goal is met, how many pounds of solid waste will ne recycled in the year 2009?
Round your answer to the NEAREST BILLION of pounds.
