Take the leading numbers, how many times will 66 go into 131?

im confused . . .
What is 65 times 2?
Ok. Now look at your distance from the Sun to the Earth. is that pretty close to what you got?
yeee . . .
So which of your answers are possible then?
uhmmm a ?
A says nearly 3 times as far. You multiplied by 2 and got almost exactly the distance you needed.
c ? twice as far cuss imuLtipLied by 2 .
Ok but it could still be D too. We need to determine now if it's C or D. So we need to detemine if we estimated high or low.
ohhh how do ido that ?
Ok lets look at it this way. Your distance from Venus to the Sun is 66,790,000 miles, and from the Sun to the Earth is 131,100,000 miles. 66,790,000 is more than 66,000,000. We can calculate that 66,000,000 is 132,000,000, which is more than the distance between the Sun and the Earth.
So since our ACTUAL distance is LESS than 2 times our estimated distance, it has to be D. Basically 66,790,000 times 2 is GREATER than 131,100,000. This means that 131,100,000 is nearly twice as far (but not quite) as 66,790,000 miles.
