Use dimensional analysis We'll call the speed of light \[3x10^{8}\] so.\[\frac{ 3x10^{8}meters }{ 1 \sec }*\frac{ 60 \sec }{ 1 \min} *\frac{ 60 \min }{ 1 hr }*\frac{ 24 hrs }{ 1 day }\]

Every thing should cancel out but meters and days. Then just multiply by 365 days to get how many meters it travels in a year
