One bushel of apples from a dwarf apple tree is equal to 42 pounds. Write an expression to find the number of pounds of apples in any number of bushels. If one tree can produce 6 bushels, how many pounds of apples will an orchard of 100 trees produce?

Let x be the number of bushels. Given that 1 bushel $$= 42$$ pounds, then the expression to find the number of pounds is to multiply 42 pounds by the number of bushels:
$$x=6 \cdot 100=600$$
Using the expression above, we have $$42(600)=25200$$ pounds of apples.
