Abstract

We derive the distance modulus of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) by applying the new calibrated relationship between maximum magnitude and rate of decline (MMRD). The result, , is in close agreement with the most recent determinations based on RR Lyrae and Cepheids. We also discuss the properties of the MMRD of M31 and of the LMC.
