Planets on ellipse...

Geometry Level 3

We know that planets rotate and revolve in an imaginary orbit in a form of ellipse.. We sighted a planet, say X.. The orbit of planet X has an eccentricity of approximately 0.02468.. If its perihelion is approximately 599,584.916 km, give an approximation for its aphelion.. Round to 4 decimal places.. Answer is already understood to be in km..

Perihelion is the distance when a planet is at its nearest point to the sun while aphelion is the distance when a planet is at its farthest point to the sun..
