a. The formula for the velocity of an object is , where v is the velocity of the object, d is the distance traveled, and t is the time elapsed while that distance is traveled. If you had only this formula to work with, what should your first step be in determining how long it takes for light to reach Earth from the Sun? What additional information do you need to calculate this?

1. v = d/t

get d = the distance from the sun to earth.
now use v = speed of light

t = d/v

go for it.
