Jupiter is 9.28 x 108 km from Earth when they are farthest apart. Mars is 410,000,000 km from Earth when they are farthest apart.

a) How much farther away from Earth is Jupiter?

b) When Jupiter is closest to Earth, it is only 629 million km away? What is the difference in distances from its farthest to its closest distance from Earth?

c) Neptune is 4.3 billion miles away from Earth. How much farther is it away from Earth than Jupiter at its farthest point?

I would write down what I think but I don't understand how to do this. Someone, please help

1. Steve

let's just assume everything is in millions, so
(a) 928-410 = ?
(b) 928-629 = ?
(c) 4300-928 = ?

Still, it would always be useful if you wrote down your answers; it might help us figure out where you are going wrong.

I didn't want to write down the answers because the school I'm going to might think I copied and paste it and cheated
