Let us say that at their closest approach, Mars is about 54.6 million kilometers from the Earth. Mars has a diameter of about 6,779 km. On the same evening let's say our Moon is about 384,400 km away and has diameter of about 3,478 km
If we suddenly swapped the position of the Moon and Mars, roughly how many times larger would Mars appear relative to the Moon? (round to one decimal place)
Here is a picture before the swap occurs:
  • Your answer should be
  • an integer, like 6
  • an exact decimal, like 0, point, 75
  • a simplified proper fraction, like 3, slash, 5
  • a simplified improper fraction, like 7, slash, 4
  • a mixed number, like 1, space, 3, slash, 4
