An actual conversation in my math class

Our prof asks a student which problem she wants to go over. The Student tells her the page number and problem number. The prof asks her to read the problem to her.

Student: Two men are trying to balance a 3 ton piece of machinery on a beam. THe machinery is 11 inches away from the fulcrum. The combined weight of the men is 330 libs. How far away should the men be standing from the fulcrum?

Prof: 330 what?

Student: 330 libs.

Prof: You mean POUNDS?
