Geosynchronous satellites orbit the Earth at an altitude of about 3.58×10^7 m. Given that the Earth's radius is 6.38×10^6 m and its mass is 5.97×10^24 kg, what is the magnitude of the gravitational acceleration at the altitude of one of these satellites?

Please explain as well as give an answer. I would like to know the hows and whys for future reference.
