Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Barbie, 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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?
