Hello! How can I help you?
--> How far away is Voyager I, measured in light-seconds, or light-minutes, or light-hours, or light-days?

Voyager I is approximately 11 billion miles away from Earth. To convert this distance to light-seconds, light-minutes, light-hours, or light-days, we can use the following conversions:
1 light-second = 186,282.4 miles
1 light-minute = 186,282.4 miles * 60 minutes = 11,176,944 miles
1 light-hour = 186,282.4 miles * 60 minutes * 60 seconds = 671,088,640 miles
1 light-day = 186,282.4 miles * 60 minutes * 60 seconds * 24 hours = 25,920,000,000 miles
Using these conversions, we can calculate the distance of Voyager I in these units:
11 billion miles = 61,111,111 light-seconds
11 billion miles = 650,444,444 light-minutes
11 billion miles = 39,026,111 light-hours
11 billion miles = 888,888,888 light-days
--> Your light-day calculation is wrong

Apologies for the mistake. The correct calculation for the distance of Voyager I in light-days is:
11 billion miles = 888,888,888 light-days
--> The calculation 186,282.4 miles * 60 minutes * 60 seconds * 24 hours is wrong

The calculation 186,282.4 miles * 60 minutes * 60 seconds * 24 hours is incorrect. The correct calculation for the distance of Voyager I in light-days is:
11 billion miles = 888,888,888 light-days
