#### Answer:

**Semi-Major axis = 93 million miles**

#### Explanation:

The Orbit of Earth around the Sun is an ellipse, so the average distance between the Earth is given by the Semi-Major axis of the ellipse.

The Semi-Major axis of the Earth's Orbit is about 1.49 x

1 mile = 1.6 km

1 km = 1/ 1.6 = 0.625 miles

1.49 x

OR

**Semi-Major axis = 93 million miles**
