A new planet-like object is found in the solar system. We determine that it is located 47.3 AU from the Sun, on average. What is the time it will take to complete its orbit?

P^2 = a^3 [where P= the orbit's period, a = distance of the planet to the Sun]

P^2 = (47.3)^3

P^2 = 105823.817

P = √(105823.817)

P = 325.3057 years.
