**Damon**, Sunday, October 3, 2010 at 7:56pmm g = G m M / r^2

so

g = G M / r^2

g' = G M /R^2

g'/g = 1/r'^2 / 1/r^2

g'/g = r^2/r'^2

1/20 = r^2/r'^2

so r'/r = sqrt 20 = 4.47

so r' = 4.47 * earth radius

**Eden**, Sunday, October 3, 2010 at 8:04pmThanks for the help, but it said it wasn't right.... I did 4.47*(6.38*10^3)

Is that right?

**Damon**, Sunday, October 3, 2010 at 8:25pmearth radius = 6.38*10^6

not 10^3
