    Answer:

    16 years

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given that :

    Earth’s distance from sun = 93 million miles

    Number of years to complete an orbit = 1 year

    Average orbiting distance of new asteroid = 1488 million miles

    Number of years to complete an orbit = x

    93,000,000 Miles = 1

    1488000000 miles = x

    Cross multiply :

    93000000x = 1488000000

    x = 1488000000 / 93000000

    x = 16 years

    Period taken to orbit the sun = 16 years
