Came upon this Space Question?

I am doing some questions based on our solar system...but I got stuck on this one:

How do the distances between the innder planets compare? How do the distances between the outer plantes compare? Explain how the distances within each group compare to the group's distance from the Sun.

Can someone please help...i have no idea

    I'm certainly no expert, but from my high school physics days I recall something about Bode's law. You might be able to Google or Wikipedia it. It was an explanation, in Newtonian physics terms, of why the planets are where they are.

    Try a search engine, that's what they're there for.

    Click on the link to each planet, that'll tell you the distance from it to the sun.
