Answer
HI Dr. Mohamed

I think you'll find most of the information you need on this website:

http://www.windows2universe.org/physical_science/physics/mechanics/orbit/perihel

The figure I usually quote is that the Earth is roughly 93 million miles (about 150 million kilometers) from the Sun.  But you can read more on the website.

I hope that helps!
