Acceleration Due to Gravity Problem **HELP**

1. Homework Statement
Titania, the largest moon of the planet Uranus, has 1/8 the radius of the earth and 1/1700 the mass of the earth...

What is the acceleration due to gravity at the surface of Titania? (m/s^2)


2. Homework Equations
g= GMe/Re^2

(Me) mass of planet
(Re) radius of planet


3. The Attempt at a Solution

well, i thought this was the right way of doing the problem, but i get a totally wrong answer and i am totally confussed on if this is the right equation for this problem or not.
