1 AU (Astronomical Unit). 1 AU is defined as the mean distance between the earth and the sun, however this doesn't make it a 100% always right answer, as the earth's orbit is ellipsical so varies in radius. Joking answers aside though, the ellipsical nature of the earth's orbit means there is no 1 right answer, though even if it was perfectly circular there would still be conflicting answers due to measuring errors.
