Given that
The speed of light in vacuum is unity
 
And we want to find the distance between the Sun and the Earth
Use formula
Distance = speed  × time 
Speed is unity = 1 unit /sec
Time = 8 min and 20 sec   = 8 × 60 + 20 sec = 500 sec 
Plug the values we get
 
Distance between Sun and Earth = 1× 500 = 500 units

The speed of light in vacuum © = 1 new unit of length /s
Time taken by light to reach the earth
t = 8 min + 20 s = (8 X 60 + 20) s = 500 s
Distance between the sun and the earth = Speed of light x Time
x = c x t = 1 new unit of length/ s x 500 s = 500 new unit of length
