We had a Science test today and just after the test the teacher gave out the

answers to all questions. I had a doubt which I wanted to ask. Hope you can help

me...

## Homework Statement

A person can lift 60 kg of weight on the Earth. How much weight will

the respective person be able to lift if he is on the Moon?

a) 6kg b) 10kg c) 360kg d) 60kg

## Homework Equations

I have always known that the gravity of the Moon is 5/6 times less than the Earth

i.e. 1/6 of the Earth.

## The Attempt at a Solution

So, following the above equation, if a person is able to lift 60kg on Earth he should be

able to lift (60 * 6)kg i.e. 360kg of weight. That's what I think, but according to my teacher

the answer should be 10kg as 60 * 1/6 = 10. I have not asked her doubt yet.

Merci beaucoup!
