A light year, the distance light travels in 

1 year, is approximately 5.9×1012 miles. A nearby galaxy is approximately 8.5×108 light years from our galaxy. Find the distance in miles between our galaxy and the nearby galaxy.

I am sorry but I cannot read the distance between the galaxies.  However, I will solve the questions as best as I can without.  If you would like me to do it with the correct number, please provide the distance to the nearby galaxy in light years.

Let's assume that the distance to is 200 light years (I have no idea if this is even close, but you can replace the correct number in the formula)

So we start with that number and multiply by the number of miles in a lightyear

200 light years * 5.9x10^12 miles / light year = 1.18x10^15 miles.

Please ask if you have anymore questions about this or give me the number of light years to fully solve the problem.
