I think you want to know how to determine the Schwarzchild radius (which is the distance from the singularity to the event horizon)?

r(Schwarzchild)=2GM/c^2
I'll provide the numbers and you can solve it.
For one solar mass
M ~ 1.99x10^30 kg
G ~ 6.67x10^-11 m^3/kg*s^2
c^2 ~ 9x10^16 m^2/s^2

r=[(2)*(6.67x10^-11)(1.99x10^30)] / 9x10^16
=

The units work out like this
[(m^3/kg*s^2) * kg] / m^2/s^2 = meters
