## Answers ( )

The answer is B

Because Mercury and the Sun are 60,000,00 miles apart and Mars is 200,000,000 miles away from the sun. Divide 200,000,000 and 60,000,000 and you will get 3.3 (Just round)

Answer:B. 3

Step-by-step explanation:Distance between Sun and Mercury = 6×10^7

Distance between Sun and Mars = 2×10^8

Assuming Mars is x times farther from the Sun, implies

(6×10^7)x = 2×10^8

therefore x = (2×10^8)/(6×10^7)

Eliminating common factors( 2×10^7) is common

therefore x = (1×10)/3

x= 3.33
