Py = 1600 days. So a year on Planet Y is 1600 earth days.

Py = 2,560,000 days.

Py = 2,560,000 days.

Py = 2,560,000 days.

Py = (200 days) (4Rx)/Rx

Evaluating the right hand side results in

Py = 2,560,000 days.

Let Px be the period of revolution (that is, a year) of Planet X, Rx be the distance of Planet X, Py be the period of revolution of Planet Y and Ry be the distance of Planet Y.

Py = 40,000 days * 64 Rx/Rx. Simplifying and cancelling the Rxs:

Py = (200 days) (4Rx)/Rx

Taking the square root of both sides,
