A heavier mass m1 and a lighter mass m2 are 18.0 cm apart and experience a gravitational force of attraction that is 9.70 109 N in magnitude. The two masses have a combined value of 5.65 kg. Determine the value of each individual mass.

the gravitational constant G =6.67•10⁻¹¹ N•m²/kg²,
F =G•m₁•m₂/R²
m₁=m
m₂=5.65m
F =G•m •(5.65m)/R²
Solve for m
