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

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
