a) How far away from the centre of the moon is this new location in terms of the radius of the moon?

I know that Fg is proportional to 1/r^2

I dont know how to figure it out, can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

(1) How far away from the center of the moon is he when he is standing on the surface of the moon?

(2) How far away from the center of the moon would he need to be to reduce 1/r^2 to 1/4 of what it is on the surface of the moon?
