    Answer: 52,416,000 km

    Step-by-step explanation:

    If a comet travels 273,000 km/hr

    1) Multiply 273,000 km by 24 hours to find how far the comet travels in one day

    2) multiply the answer from 1 by 8 to determine how far it travels in 8 days

    1) \frac{273,000 km}{hr}*\frac{24 hr}{1 day} = \frac{6,552,000km}{day} (hours cancel out)

    2)\frac{6,552,000km}{day}*8 day= 52,416,000 km in 8 days

    The comet approximately travelled 52,416,000km from when it began to travel to when it reached Earth. Hope this helped 🙂
