From www.universtoday.com:

"The distance from Earth to Sun is approximately 150 million km, or 93 million miles. Need a more precise number: 149,597,887.5 km.

Keep in mind that this number is the Earth’s average distance throughout its orbit around the Sun. It actually follows an elliptical path, so sometimes the Earth is closer and other times it’s more distant from the Sun. At its closest point in orbit around the Sun, called perihelion, Earth is only 147 million km. And then at its most distant point in orbit, called aphelion, Earth gets out to 152 million km.

The average distance from Sun to Earth is used by astronomers as a standard measuring stick called an “astronomical unit” to calculate distances in the Solar System. So, that average distance of 149,597,887.5 km is 1 astronomical unit, or AU. At its perihelion, Earth measures 0.98 AU, and then at its aphelion, Earth is 1.02 AU from the Sun. "

Put your EXACT question into Google, and the answers right on top. You shouldn't make yourself look so dumb on line.
