(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If a person has a mass of 68kg, how much does he weigh on the top of mount everest (8488km above sea level?

Given: m=68kg, d=8488m

2. Relevant equations

F = (G(m1)(m2)) / r^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried figuring out the new radius. Once i get the radius i enter all the data and rearrange the formula to get m2 by itself.

Fr^2/Gm1 = m2

My problem is getting the new radius.
