Calculating Travel Times

In page 138 of the rulebook, it says:
How do we tell the distance in AU between planets? It feels like this calculation is missing a step.CALCULATING TRAVEL TIMES
Interplanetary distances are measured in Astronomical
Units (AU). The distance between two planets is calculated
◆◆ SHORTEST DISTANCE: The difference between the planets’
individual distances from the sun.
◆◆ FARTHEST DISTANCE: The sum of the planets’ individual
distances from the sun.
◆◆ Divide the distance in AU by the spaceship’s speed to get
the travel time (in number of days).
