# the distance between the earth and the moon is about 22^4 miles. The distance between earth to neptune is about 22^7 miles. Which distance is the greater distance and about how many times greater is it?

$22^{4} =22*22*22*22= 234,256$ $22^{7} =22*22*22*22*22*22*22= 2,494,357,888$ Distance between earth to Neptune is greater by 10,648 times
$\frac{22^7}{22^4} = 22^{7-4} = 22^3=10648$ The distance from Earth to Neptune is greater by 22^3 or 10,648 miles. :)
