Homework Help: Physics

I thought I did the problem right, but I don't think I came out with the right answer! Please someone check to see if I got this problem right.

Calculate the force of gravity between Earth (mass=6.0*10^24 kg) and the moon (mass=7.4*10^22 kg). The average Earth-moon distance is 3.8*10^8 m.

The answer I got was 2.05*10^20 Newtons, but it seems like it could possibly be too big. Am I wrong?
