Because both planets orbit the sun, the distance varies, since at some times both will be on the same side of the sun, but at other times, on opposite sides.

When Jupiter and Earth are closest, Jupiter is 390,682,810 miles (628,743,036 km) from Earth. The Earth is 93,000,000 miles (149,668,992 km) from the Sun. Jupiter is 483,682,810 miles (778,412,028 km) from the Sun. At our most distant, Jupiter is 576,682,810 miles (928,081,020 km) from the Earth, when the two planets are on opposite sides of the Sun.

Measured in Astronomical Units (AU), the distance between Earth and Jupiter varies from 4.2 AU to 6.2 AU.

An Astronomical Unit is approximately 93,000,000 miles (149,668,992 km), or the mean distance from the Earth to the Sun. Therefore, the distance between the Earth and Jupiter can be anywhere between slightly over four times or six times the distance from the Earth to the Sun.

The calculations are very close, but approximate, and also depend upon the slightly varying mass of the Sun, which has an effect on orbital distances.

The distance varies greatly as the two planets orbit the Sun.

The closest the two get is about 588 million kilometers, and this is only when Jupiter is its closest to the Sun, Earth is at its farthest, and the two are lined up on the same side of the Sun (i.e. Jupiter is in opposition).

If they are on directly opposite sides of the Sun, which they are every 399 Earth days, they can be as far as 968 million kilometers apart.

Jupiter is about 5 AU (astronomical units) from the Sun; Earth is 1 AU from the Sun, this makes the distance between Earth and Jupiter vary between 4 and 6 AU, depending on whether Jupiter is in conjunction or in opposition.

Jupiter is 360,972,764,000 miles from the sun.

Edit: The previous answer is not correct. When Jupiter and Earth are closest, Jupiter is approximately 390,682,810 miles (628,743,036 km) from Earth. The Earth is 93,000,000 miles (149,668,992 km) from the Sun. Jupiter is 483,682,810 miles (778,412,028 km) from the Sun.
