At what altitude above Earth's surface would the gravitational acceleration be 3.53 m/s^2?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I used the equation

a= GM/r^2

G=6.67 x 10^-11 and M= 5.98 x 10^24

Solving for r gives 1.06 x 10^7 m which isn't right... can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
