Two objects attract each other gravitationally with a force of 2.7 10-10 N when they are 0.25 m apart. Their total mass is 4.0 kg. Find their individual masses.

larger mass - I kind of guessed this was 4.0 kg but don't know how to do it.

smaller mass ? kg

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't quite understand how exactly this must be done. What formulas would i use?
