Two stars of mass m_{1}and m_{2}are in orbit around their center of mass. If 2m_{1}=5m_{2}, and thier orbital period is 120Ms, calculate the mass of the larger star, given that the distance between their centers is 1400Gm.

2. Relevant equations

F=GmM/r^{2}

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't even know what to put as mass of the centripod, i kneed serious help
