The size difference between the sun moon and earth?

It depends on how you describe the size; you can say volume, mass, surface area, circumference or radius. A measure of volume condiders three dimensions, and a radius one dimension, so the volume will go up by a factor of eight when you double the radius. If we just use radius, then the Moons mean radius is 1737 km (0.273 of Earths), the Earth is 6378 km and the suns radius is around 695500 km or 109 times that of Earths. When considering volumes though, the Suns volume is 1.3 million times that of the Earths.
