Ch. P - Applying Linear Equation in Two Variables

Generally speaking, option 4's chapter P project consists of the application of the distance and time of astronomical objects/bodies in the solar system by according to the speed of light. I am personally assigned to compare the distances and times that it takes for Neptune to travel to Triton (Neptune's moon), the Sun, and the Earth with the speed of light. As you know, the speed of light is approximately 186,000 miles per second. I applied this with the equation d = r x t, in which d is the distance, t is the time, and r is the rate (Distance = Rate x Time). As you will see below here, I will apply the distance formula to the space between the bodies in the solar system by solving each one algebraically and numerically.
