Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01 AU is the distance from the center of the earth to the center of the sun 1AU = 1.496 * 10^11 meters 1 Parsec = 1 pc = 3.086 * 10^16 meters and 1 light year is = to 9.46 x 10^15 meters

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So 1 AU is = to 4.84814 * 10^6 Parsecs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To convert parsecs to light years its ly = pc * 3.2616 to convert ly to parsec it's gonna be \[\frac{ ly }{ 3.2616 } = parsec\] and Au to ly its 63239.7263 * ly = au so for example if you have 147 light years and want it in AU it would be 147* 63239.7239 = 9 296 239.7661 AU and you can convert it to sig figs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, where do you get the 3.2616 and the 63239.7 from the question?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01 light year over 3.2616 you'll get 0.307 (rounded) which is in your table "for one light year equals"
