  1. Nothing wrong with the "formula" in red! The distance here is expressed in parsec (pc), where 1 pc ~31 trillion km.
  2. For interest's sake, if no true fractions were involved at all, there is an alternative solution ...
  3. YAY! second number: the last digit of powers of 3 runs through the cycle (3971), with exponent divisible by 4 ending in 1. 556677 is 1mod4 so it ends in 3.
