Kepler third law of orbital Motion states that you can approximate the period p(in earth years) it takes a planet to complete one orbit of the sun using the function p=d3/2, where d is the distance( In astronomical units,AU)from the planet to the sun. How many Earth years would it take for a planet that is 6.76 AU from the sun?

    just sub d=6.76 into the eq and you'll get the p.
