Astronomers measure large distances in light-years. One light-year is the distance that light can travel in one year, or approximately 5.88 × 10*12 miles. Suppose a star is 9.8 × 10^1 light-years from Earth. In scientific notation, approximately how many miles is it?

A. 5.88 × 10^13 miles
B. 5.76 × 10^14 miles***
C. 5.88 × 10^12 miles
D. 9.8 × 10^12 miles
