Image description:

As seen in table above, our planet in habitable zone should orbit the star at the distance of 0.08 AU. This would probably made the planet to be tidally locked, which means that one side of the planet would always be "day" and the other would be "night".


Orbiting at speed of 55,5 km/s, Mercury sized planet would finish one orbit (it's year would last) in 17 days 5 hours.
