# Sarah wants to use a model to get an idea of how far away the stars are. She uses a marble to represent the Earth, and she places a basketball 1 m away to represent the Sun, which is the nearest star. If Sarah wishes to keep the distances between objects in her model at an accurate scale, then the object representing the next-nearest star must be placed

300,000 m away

300 m away
