Unformatted text preview: Next was to work on the diameter of the sun to do this I first found that the sun’s diameter was 1.4millionkm wide, I took 1.4million over 12,742 to find that it would equal 98.1in thus leaving only to find the distance of the two from the sun. I first found that the distance of the moon from the Earth is 384,403km so once again I took the number over 12,742 and I reached the number 30.17in.
