Use   T = time in SECONDS

         G = gravitational constant    6.67408 x 10-11

         M = mass of Sun   1.989 x 1030

 

And the equation     T =  sqrt  (4 pi2 r3 /(GM)  )       Solve for r   which will be in METERS

 

Then divide by AU (in meters )   1.4959787 x 1011                  Let me know what ya find for an answer.....it IS in your list of possibles !cheeky
