Homework Help: physics

Upon its return voyage from a space mission, the spacecraft has a velocity of 24000km/h at point A, which is 7000km from the center of the earth. Determine the velocity of the spacecraft when it reaches point B, which is 6500km from the center of the earth. The trajectory between these points is outside the effect of the earth's atmosphere.

I solved for the velocity and got 2.63*10^10 and the real answer is 26300km/h. How am I off by such a big factor of 10?
