  1. F=[G(m1)(m2)]/r^2

    not sure but I assume you could use this. (m1 is earth mass) (m2 is mass of moon needed) (r is the distance between earth and moon) (G is universal gravitational constant) (F is the force of gravity between the 2 bodies or planets)

  2. wait..I thought you said how to calculate the mass of the moon but reading it again it says if I'm not incorrect, how to calculate your mass on the moono

    if it is so then your mass is:

    m-1/6(m)= your mass on the moon
