Moon = 240,000 Miles = 2.4 x 10^5 Miles

Neptune = 2,700,000,000= 2.7 x 10^9

We can calculate how far the space vehicle can travel in a day to the moon:

(2.4 x 10^5 miles)/3days=

(0.8 x 10^5 miles)/days=

8.0 x 10^4 miles/days. This is a rate of miles per day.

How many days to Neptune?

(2.7 x 10^9 miles)/(8.0 x 10^4 miles/days)

divide the numerator and denominator by 10^4

(2.7 x 10^5 miles)/(8.0 miles/days)

divide 2.7/8.0=.3375

(.3375 x 10^5) days=

(3.375 x 10^4) days=

rounded?

(3.0 x 10^4) days=
