I've been stuck on this equation for a while and I don't know if i'm missing a key part to the equation.. i just need help!

If the gravitational field strength at the top of Mount Everest is 9.772 N/kg, approximately how tall (in feet) is the mountain?

F= g ( m1 x m2)/ radius^2

f= gravitational force
g= 6.67x10^-11
m= mass
d= radius^2
earth mass= 5.98x10^24
earth radius = 6.38x10^6
