what is 10,000lb=_____T

5 tons, since there are 2000 lb per ton.

As a follow through to the other post I did for you (cups to pints), note

tons=10,000 lbs x factor

tons = 10,000 lbs x (1 ton/2,000 lb)=

5 tons. Note again, how the lbs (the unit we want to lose) is gone and the unit we want for the answer (tons) stays for the answer to be 5 tons.
