Homework Help: Math

Posted by Larry on Saturday, September 13, 2008 at 10:55pm.

The period of revolution of a planet around the sun is the time it takes for the planet to complete one orbit of the sun. The period, P years, is give by Kepler's third law P^2=D^3, where D is the average distance from the sun in astronomical units (AU). One AU is the average distance f the Earth fromt he sun. Use the average distance formt he sun to find the period of revolution for Jupiter; 5.20 AU to the nearest tenth of a year.

I don't get that, the teacher said the answer was 11.9 I think. Anyone care to explain how?

Thanks
