Find the planets nearest orbital distance from its star [Solved]

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AhtSF

(a p)= 2 x average distance
a p= 128 x 2
a p= 256 million kilometers
a-p= eccentricity x 2 x average distance
a-p= .5 x 2 x 128
a-p= 128 million kilometers
make it a 2 step equation:
128 2perihelion= 256
subtract 128 from both sides:
2perhelion= 128
divide each side by 2:
perihelion=64 million kilometers
aphelion= 256 64
aphelion= 192 million kilometers
check the answer by doing (a-p) / (a p) the answer should be .5
(192-64) / (192 64)= .5
the answer is correct.
