Re: Astronomy C

Alright, so:

The luminosity of Galaxy A is 2.692x10^27 watts. Galaxy A has an apparent magnitude of 6.89.
Galaxy B contains Cepheid variable stars with a period of 0.04252 years. Galaxy B has an apparent magnitude of 4.37.

Calculate the ratio of the distance to Galaxy A to the distance to Galaxy B.
