Suppose you lived on a planet with the same radius as the Earth, but it had a density 2.99 times Earth's density.
Your weight would be different on this planet. Find how much you would weigh on this planet divided by your weight on Earth

I bet you would weigh 2.99 times as much.
Fg=G MassEarth*YourMass/radius^2
so if density changes, it directly changes MassEarth
