    365.25 days per year

    280 km/hr

    5.9 * 10^9 km

    5.9 * 10^9 km = 280 km/hr * 24 hr/day * 365.25 day/year * x year

    5.9 * 10^9 / (280 * 24 * 365.25) = x

    x = 5.9 * 10^8 / (28 * 24 * 365.25)

    x = 59 * 10^7 / (28 * 24 * 365.25)

    x = 59 * 10^7 / ‭245,448‬

    x = 590000 * 10^3 / 245448

    x = ‭2.403767804178481796551611746683.... * 10^3
