I'm doing a solar system project for school. The problem I'm facing is that I'm am doing every two feet is 10 astronomical units, but how many 1/8 inch's is one astronomical unit?

2ft(12in/ft)(8 oneeights/inch)=24*8 eights in two feet, which is 10 au.
xxxxeigthinch/au= 24*8/10=19.2 eigthinches is one AU. or 2.4inch is one AU. or 2 inches + 2.4 eights is one AU.
