    34,570,000 times 3 is slightly larger than 91,410,000

    91,410,000-34,570,000<...<34,570,000+91,410,000

    Barbie, if you multiply the distance from the sun to mercury times 3 it's more than the distance from the sun to the earth. So how could Earth be over 3 times the distance away from the sun than Mercury is?

    I think your just trying too hard. Look these estimation problems require just a little common sense. Lets say I have 11*3 compared to 30. We know 11*3 is 33. So 11*3 is slightly larger than 30. Right?
