Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Gee what was I thinking, I meant a radius of 98 million miles or a diameter of 196 million miles, giving a circumference of 615.75 million miles using the d=rt equation, v=615.75 million/(365.24 days)=1.69 million miles per day, or .07 million miles per hour.
