Dear brother,
An inch is a very small unit to measure the distance between Sun and the Earth! Eventhough, We can calculate it just for fun!
Time taken for a light wave to reach Earth from Sun (t) = 8 minutes =8*60 seconds=480 seconds
Velocity of light in vacuum (c) = 3*108 meters per second
The distance between Earth and the Sun= t*c
  = 480*3*108 meters
  = 1440*108 meters

We know that , 1 inch= 2.54*10-2 meters
The distance between The Earth and The Sun=1440*108/2.54*10-2   =5669291338583 inches!!

Wonderful, Isn't it?
