$92955778.49 m i$

#### Explanation:

The distance between the sun and earth in is $1$ $A U$,

$1$ $A U$ $=$ $149597870.66$ $k m$

In $1$ $k m$ there is $0.621371$ miles.

$149597870.66$ $k m$ =(0.621371 mi)/(1km

$149597870.66$ $\cancel{k} \cancel{m}$ =(0.621371 mi)/(1cancelkcancelm

$= 92955778.49 m i$
