## Homework Statement

The fictional planet Snazbort has a fictional moon Pingdol. Pingdol has an orbital period of 7.68 days and a semimajor axis of 92.53×109. Use Kepler's Third Law to estimate the mass of Snazbort.

## Homework Equations

T^2=4pi^2*a^3/(GM)

where 2a is the length of major axis

T is the time required for it to travel once around its elliptical orbit

G is gravitational constant

M is mass

## The Attempt at a Solution

I've tried plugging in the numbers and I can't seem to figure out how I'm supposed to enter them. I'm also not entirely sure how I even get G. The G I used is from another question.

If it helps at all, the screenshot is here along with my "best" attempt.

EDIT: I got the answer. I was supposed to change T into seconds -_-
