Planet A is at a distance of


Planet A is at a distance of 9.35 x 106 km from Earth and planet B is 6.27 x 107 km from Earth. Which planet is nearer to Earth?


Distance between planet A and Earth = 9.35 x 10km Distance between planet B and Earth = 6.27 x 107 km

For finding difference between above two distances, we have to change both in same exponent of 10, i.e. 9.35 x.106 = 0.935 x 107, clearly 6.27 x

107 is greater.

So, planet A is nearer to Earth.
